The student who shot and critically wounded two fellow students at a Maryland High school this morning has died after being shot by a campus security officer, as per reports from Reuters and the county sheriff. The shooting began early in the school day and the student, who has not yet been identified in the press, shot a male and female student at the Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County in Maryland. An armed SRO officer returned fire according to Sheriff Timothy Cameron. Currently, both of the students who were shot by the as yet unnamed assailant are still in critical condition in the hospital. The officer himself remains unharmed. The entirety of the school body has been escorted off the campus by police to reunite with their parents at a nearby high school.

As we reported earlier today, a spokesman for the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office had already reported that the “incident has been contained,” even before the students were escorted away. The school had a population of over 1,600 students. This will be the sixteenth school shooting of 2018, thankfully the intervention of an armed guard resulted in the shooter being taken out before more harm could be caused unlike in Parkland where multiple armed deputies remained crouched outside during the attack.

just imagine how many kids in Florida would be alive if someone with (balls) would have took down the guy with the gun….with a gun. Could have saved a lot of kids.
