A 17-year-old man shot 2 or more students at a high school in the Great Mill in Maryland on Tuesday early morning before a school mate joined him and stopped the threat.
The report began in the school hall at 7:55, just before the course started. Authorities say that Austin Wyatt Rollins, armed with weapons, fired female and male students. Sagittarius had a previous relationship with a woman, says Tim Cameron, County Sheriff, Mr. St Mary.
Student is in critical condition
School boss Blaine Gaskill responded to the scene in less than a minute, the sheriff said. Gaskill fired at the shooter and the shooter fired the wheel at the same time, Cameron said.
Rollins was later dead. Gaskill was undamaged. The 16-year-old student is in critical condition with lethal injuries, and the 14-year-old man who was shot is in equilibrium.
Cameron said he was not sure if Gaskill’s bullet had hit the suspect, but he praised the officer’s quick response to the situation.
“He responded exactly how we train our staff to answer,” he said.
The incident is the 17th school shootout in the United States since January 1, according to a survey.
“That’s what we’re doing, that’s what we’re preparing for, and that’s what we pray that we’ll never have to do.” On this day, we realized it was our worst nightmare, “Cameron said.
“The notion” it can not happen here “is no longer a concept.”
The school was briefly closed and students were evacuated from the Great Mill to reunite at a nearby high school, the school system said.
School buses attacked a large mill to get to another school after Tuesday’s shooting.
Toni Foreman, who lives with the suspect and his family near Lexington Park, said he was a good guy from a nice family who played with his son to catch and ride his bike.
“Whenever the snow was out, he would have helped the shovel,” she said. “I’m just on the floor, that’s him. ”
Jonathan liberate, a student at Big Mills, called CNN from his mobile phone and blocked the Math class. The police walked through the classroom to tell the school, Freee said.
“I’m a little shaken,” he said

Freese says the school has been practicing for such a situation several times.
“I did not expect it to happen, but I always feel safe because they always have the police at school,” he said.
The Great Mills High School is located in the Big Mill, about 70 miles southeast of Washington. It has more than 1,500 students, of which about 56% are students of minorities, and its 4-year degree is 91%, according to the school improvement plan in 2015-16.
The 17th year of school shooting this year
Last week, students in the Big Mill went out of school as part of the student protests against school violence after mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Several students from Stoneman Douglas tweeted about school in Big Mill filming on Tuesday, offering their thoughts and calling after the end of violence gun in schools.
The words School & Shooting should not be next to eachother. Headlines like this should not have to be typed up every week. All of these incidents have one thing in common. My thoughts are with Maryland right now. https://t.co/UdkvX6UyxU

The words School & Shooting should not be side by side. Such headlines should not be written weekly. All these cases have a common cause. My thoughts are right now with Maryland, “wrote student activist Adam Alhanti.
Other students, Stoneman Douglas, contrasted with a quick response from a school officer in Maryland, with Stoneman Douglas’s decision not to go to school and shoot a shooter.
“At least somebody does their job,” said student Stoneman Douglas Tanzil Philip. “I feel that our (school officer) went to the building, the overall result would be less bad.”
“I feel angry that the protocols in our situation were not effective,” said Demitri Hoth, another student, Stoneman Douglas.
Governor Larry Hogan said that shooting was a “call to action” that dealt with school security.
“Although our pain remains fresh and the facts remain vague, today’s terrible events should not be a pretext to suspend our conversation about school security, instead it must serve as a call to action,” he said in his statement.
Speaking to reporters, President Donald Trump called the shooting a “terrible thing
