3 injured in shooting at Maryland high school in US

Gunman shoots students at Maryland school

The attack, which lasted less than a minute, ended after the school resource officer, Deputy 1st Class Sheriff Blaine Gaskill, ran inside the building and engaged with Rollins, with both firing a single round nearly simultaneously.

In either case, St. Mary's County Sheriff Timothy Cameron said there was "no question" that Gaskill's quick arrival at the scene and immediate engagement with the shooter prevented more injuries at the school, about 70 miles south of Washington.

A gunman of 17 who shot and injured two teenage students at a high school in the USA state of Maryland was shot dead after a gunfight with a security guard.

On Tuesday morning at 7:55 am, shots were fired at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's county, Maryland.

Emma Gonzalez, a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School who survived last month's shootings, wrote on Twitter, "We are here for you, students of Great Mills, together we can stop this from ever happening again". "As to how that shaped this event, we'll have to determine". All three were in critical condition at hospitals.

The sheriff initially told reporters Rollins shot both victims with a handgun but then said in response to questions that investigators were still not certain who had fired the shot that hit the 14-year-old.

"There is an indication that there was a prior relationship between the shooter and the female victim", officials stated during a press conference.

Kogan violated the Facebook policy by selling the data as the app was not allowed to use the data for commercial purposes. And he isn't done merely with WhatsApp - in a post on Twitter today, Acton told his followers to delete Facebook .

"He responded exactly as we train our personnel to respond", he said. "He fired a round at the shooter; simultaneously the shooter fired a round as well".

Gaskill, Sheriff Cameron said at the time, "used exemplary judgment" in the situation, in which "realistic, relevant and constant training obviously paid off". "This is a tough guy who apparently closed in very quickly and took the right kind of action", Hogan said "And I think while it's still tragic, he may have saved other people's lives".

The county sheriff said parents or guardians should stay away, urging them to go instead to Leonardtown High School to reunite with Great Mills students there.

The main objection to arming school employees appears to me to be that liberal administrators don't like guns, are scared of them, are politically opposed to the Second Amendment, and, most importantly, stubbornly refuse to admit they're wrong. "They had a lot of officers respond". The NEA is steadfast in our support of the students, staff and families of Great Mills High School. "I'm so exhausted I'm so exhausted". Their event, dubbed "March for Our Lives", will take place in several cities across the USA and is expected to turn out large crowds. He said he believes momentum is building for reform, fueled by student activism. "On this day, we realized our worst nightmare", Cameron said.

Many students across the country are calling for effective gun controls, leading up to Saturday's March For Our Lives rally in the nation's capital against gun violence in schools.

The shooting comes less than a month after the school was allegedly prompted to alert parents about an investigation into a threat on the school - and Snapchat warnings about an impending shooting.
