A look at 2018's school shootings and the suspects

A look at 2018's school shootings and the suspects

Suspect Austin Rollins' two alleged victims - a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl - were shot in a Great Mills High School hallway just before classes began, authorities said, adding that Rollins, 17, died after exchanging gunfire with a school resource officer.

A YouCaring fundraiser for the family has already raised over $42,000 in just 24 hours. "We still have somebody in critical condition".

A high school student was shot five times in the parking lot of Pearl-Cohn High School. "The shooter fired a round as well". The latest in a long string of deadly shootings at United States schools and universities took place a little more than a month after 17 students and educators were shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. But it could have dragged on longer and proven deadlier were it not for the rapid response of a school resource officer.

Police say a 17-year-old boy used his father's gun in an attack at his Maryland high school.

Governor Larry Hogan [R-MD] also joined Cameron to address the media, "Our hearts are broken".

Deputies are still investigating the motive of the shooting.

Avengers: Infinity War breaks ticket pre-sale records in just hours
It's a fun nod to the man who was the brain behind numerous characters that make Marvel what it is today. The co-director added that Thor will have a lot of screen time in " Infinity War ".

MedStar St. Mary's Hospital said in a statement the 14-year-old boy was in "good condition" with a thigh injury.

The St. Mary's County district confirmed Great Mills High School is on lockdown but "the event is contained".

"Less than a WEEK ago Great Mills High School students walked out with us to protest gun violence, now they're experiencing it for themselves", Jaclyn Corin wrote. But this time, it appears a school resource officer took action and stopped a potentially bigger problem. Threats against schools have proliferated as well, and Great Mills High has not been immune.

It was not yet clear whether Rollins took his own life or was killed by the officer's bullet, nor was it clear how the 14-year-old boy was wounded.

Eleven weeks into 2018 there have been 17 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed.

A school resource officer, Deputy First Class Blaine Gaskill, shot the shooter, but it's not clear if the officer killed the shooter or if the shooter killed himself, according to Cameron. Politicians were quick to respond to yet another school shooting, calling for action against gun violence.

Saudi Arabia eyeing $400bn United States investments, says crown prince
The two leaders view Iran as a threat to the Middle East region, making Saudi-U.S. relations a priority for the administration. And this is where strategists say the crown prince and the USA president can aim for complete alignment.

Cameron said Rollins pulled out a Glock semiautomatic pistol in a hallway of the school and opened fire. But Cameron credited the officer with preventing any more loss of life.

"If you don't think this can happen at your school you are sadly mistaken", said Dr. James Smith of the St. Mary's school system. "Our prayers are with students, school personnel, and first responders".

A sheriff's spokeswoman says three people have been injured in a shooting at a high school in southern Maryland, including the shooter.

The Maryland high school where a student shot and wounded at least one classmate before dying in a confrontation with a police officer will remain closed until next month. He said he believes momentum is building for an overhaul of gun policies, fueled by student activism.

Agents with the ATF office in Baltimore were also responding to the school. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives helped conduct an urgent trace for the gun, but how Rollins got his hands on it is still under investigation.

"He's doing well and we're going to do everything to support and promote him and his well-being", Cameron said. But that is unlikely to be the case until Congress takes meaningful action.
