  • Several People Shot At Maryland High School

- A school resource officer is being credited with stopping the gunman in a shooting that injured two students at a St. Mary's County high school Tuesday morning.

Seventeen-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins fired at a female student in a hallway around 7:55 a.m. Tuesday morning, St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron said.

Two students - the girl, who is 16, and a 14-year-old boy - were taken to hospitals, where the girl was listed in stable condition and the boy in good condition, according to hospital statements.

A teenager wounded a girl and a boy inside his Maryland high school on Tuesday before an armed school resource officer was able to intervene, and each of them fired one more round as the shooter was fatally wounded, a sheriff said.

Rollins was pronounced dead at a hospital in Charles County at 10:41 a.m., the sheriff said.

A school resource officer is credited with potentially saving lives when he confronted the shooter.

Within minutes of the school shooting at Great Mills High School, pastors started organizing a vigil at a nearby church.

Under the banner #ENOUGH, tens of thousands of USA high school students walked out of classrooms around the country on March 14 to protest gun violence. It was the deadliest mass shooting at a United States high school.

"He had to cover significant ground", Cameron said.

The state's Republican governor, Larry Hogan, said his thoughts and prayers were with the victims but added, "We need more than prayers". Ultimately, the suspect, Pekka Robert Heinonen, 59, of Great Mills, complied and was placed under arrest.

School buses could be seen lined up ready to ferry the kids away from the school in Great Mills, around 60 miles south-east of Washington DC. "But we don't have action", said the No. 2 U.S. House Democrat, Steny Hoyer, who represents the area in Congress.

Eventually, the students were escorted outside and taken to another school to be reunited with their parents.

Minutes later, some of the school's almost 1,600 students were being escorted by an adult behind the main building as first responders continued securing the area.

Cameron said authorities were still investigating whether the shooter was killed by the officer.

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".

"It makes me feel angry that the protocols were not effective in our situation", said Demitri Hoth, another Stoneman Douglas student. Heibel said the school increased its security nevertheless after social media posts about a possible school shooting "circulated quite extensively". These are children, as Dr. Smith (St. Mary's County Schools Superintendent) said.

With three weeks left in the session, Hogan said, "It's outrageous that we haven't taken action yet on something as important as school safety".

The sheriff's deputy and the teen gunman each fired once at each other.
