A taxi driver killed 10 victims in a single hour during a shooting rampage in rural England in which he murdered 12 people and wounded 11 others, police said Friday.Craig Mackey, chief of police for the county of Cumbria, said Derrick Bird murdered his twin brother and a family lawyer "before departing on a 45-mile rampage across west Cumbria." He shot a fellow cabbie at a taxi stand and then drove through the countryside in his cab, blasting victims seemingly at random. Many were shot in the face.Police said the 52-year-old, who committed suicide after the attacks, used his knowledge of the area's narrow country roads to elude police."Twelve innocent people - mother, fathers, partners and friends _were brutally murdered as they went about their daily lives," Mackey said. He said investigations had found that Bird killed 10 of his victims in about 60 minutes on Wednesday.
