- MAN WHO STOPPED THE SHOOTER WAS WAS ARMED pay attention #antigun
Two students were critically injured and a #gunman
died in a shooting at #GreatMills
High School in Southern Maryland Tuesday morning as classes began, according to the Saint Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office.
The gunman who was a student at the school 70 miles south of #Washington
, D.C. opened fire in a hallway shortly before #classes
began around 8 a.m., striking a female and male student, said Sheriff Timothy K. Cameron.
Students and staff quickly notified an armed #school
resource officer, who pursued the shooter and fired a single shot at him, Cameron said at a press conference around 11:30 a.m. The shooter #fired
The shooter and the two students were rushed to local hospitals in critical condition. The shooter, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at 10:41 a.m., Cameron said.“On this day, we realized our worst nightmare,” Cameron said. “Our children were attacked in a bastion of safety...The notion that it can’t happen here is no longer a notion.”
It was not immediately clear if the school resource officer’s round struck the shooter, Cameron said. The school resource officer was not injured, the sheriff said.
The school was placed on lock down as the situation unfolded.Cameron said there was “no question” the situation would have been worse if the SRO had not engaged the shooter.
Cameron said they are still investigating a motive and it’s unclear whether the shooter knew the students who were shot.
