Mother Shares Frustration with How Maryland High School Handled Shooting

United States Three including gunman injured in school shooting in Maryland Google Maps

She expressed sympathy for Willey and her family and added, "We are also praying for the entire Great Mills High School family and young people around this country". In footage recorded by Gaskill's body camera, he is heard shouting at the man to put the gun down.

Police say a 17-year-old boy used his father's gun in an attack at his Maryland high school. Larry Hogan, the Republican governor of Maryland, declared of Gaskill: "This is a tough guy who closed in quickly and took the right action", before promising to plow resources into expanding the school resource officer program in Maryland.

The school day had barely begun when the student, who has not been identified, shot a male student and a female student at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County before the campus security officer intervened, county Sheriff Timothy Cameron told a news conference. Rollins and the girl had recently ended a relationship. It wasn't clear how the 14-year-old boy was wounded.

Attempts to reach Rollins' family have not been successful.

The teen was shot Tuesday by 17-year-old Austin Rollins at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County.

Jaelynn is one of nine siblings, according to a statement from the family, and a member of the swim team.

Officials are awaiting official autopsy results to determine if Rollins was killed by Gaskill or by his own gun.

The 14-year-old victim was discharged from the hospital Wednesday.

Cameron said Gaskill, a six-year veteran with SWAT team training, responded within a minute and fired his weapon simultaneously with a final shot fired by Rollins.

The 16-year-old girl, who was identified by her family as Jaelynn Willey, suffered life-threatening injuries during the shooting and was transported to University of Maryland Prince George's Hospital Center in critical condition.

WhatsApp co-founder calls for everyone to delete Facebook
In 2014, Facebook bought WhatsApp for a whopping United States dollars 19 billion, making it the company's largest acquisition. The company made use of this data to build a social media strategy in order to assist Donald Trump's campaign for president.

In this case, it appeared the shooter illegally possessed the gun. In Maryland, a person must be 21 to possess a handgun, unless carrying one is required for employment. The officer, who resigned, said he had not been sure where the gunfire was coming from. 'About an hour or two later they came - more police came - and told us they would search us and search our bags and stuff.' Eventually, the students were escorted outside. A school resource officer arrived within a minute and fired a shot at Rollins, but it's not yet clear whether Rollins was killed by the officer's bullet or took his own life.

A 16-year-old girl who authorities said had some type of relationship with the shooter was critically wounded.

People who knew Rollins were trying to make some kind of sense of Tuesday's attack.

Bridges helped start the school resource officer program in Baltimore County more than 20 years ago.

US President Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association have proposed arming teachers to combat the threat of school shootings, while gun safety advocates have demanded a ban on semiautomatic rifles, among other laws.

In recent years, the sheriff's office has redefined its response to active-shooter situations. The coastal area of southern Maryland is about 65 miles from Washington, D.C. Each jurisdiction throughout the state individually trains officers, with some coming from local police departments and others from county sheriff's offices.

Gaskill has been assigned to Great Mills since the start of the school year, and has been with the sheriff's office for nearly six years.

It's not yet clear whether Rollins was then killed by a responding school resource officer or took his own life.

St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron credited the officer with preventing any more loss of life.
