Teen in critical condition following Maryland high school shooting

A shooting was reported Tuesday morning at Great Mills High School in Maryland

Instead, Tuesday's incident should serve as a call to action, Hogan said in a statement.

Attempts to reach his family were unsuccessful.

"Gaskill fired at the shooter nearly simultaneously as the shooter fired", Cameron said.

She says all three had been transported to hospitals.

"This is just the beginning of a very long and tragic process that we will go through in St. Mary's County", Smith said. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said of Tuesday's school shooting, "We can only hope there are no fatalities". A 14-year-old male student remains in stable condition at Medstar St. Mary's Hospital.

Gaskill made the right move, Cameron said at the time. And the school resource officer who responded inside of 60 seconds and fired off a shot at the attacker was praised as a hero.

Rollins died after a confrontation with the officer. Deputies were still working to determine the extent of that relationship, while also reviewing the shooter's electronic devices and all aspects of social media as part of the investigation.

He would often walk her son, 13-year-old Ivan Foreman, home after school, and just last week, the two boys played catch, she said.

The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office urged anyone with information about the incident to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Although they were more solid in the second half, Athletic struggled to create anything of substance going forward. Barcelona are now leading the log with 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid who play later on Sunday.


Mostly, Foreman said she felt sorrow for Rollins' family, and the two victims. Specifics would include the make, model and serial number of the firearm. The officer, who later resigned, said he had not been sure whether the gunfire was coming from inside or outside the school. The poll also found widespread bipartisan support for gun-control policies, including expanding background check for all gun buyers (94 per cent), adding people with mental illnesses to the federal gun background check system (92 per cent), raising the legal age to purchase guns from 18 to 21 (82 per cent), banning bump stocks (81 per cent), banning high-capacity ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds (73 per cent) and banning assault-style weapons (72 per cent).

A law enforcement officer armed with a rifle is seen moving past a teacher as officers respond to a shooting in this still image taken from video shot by a high school student hiding under a desk at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County, Maryland, US, March 20, 2018. Authorities have not released his name. The girl's family has identified her as Jaelynn Willey.

The student, identified as Austin Wyatt Rollins, was hit and later died, although Sheriff Tim Cameron said the student may have killed himself. Three-quarters of Americans said gun laws should be stricter than they are today, up from 68 per cent in a October 2017 survey following the Las Vegas shooting, Xinhua cited the latest poll as saying.

In the Parkland shooting, school resource deputy Scot Peterson never entered the building after taking a position outside.

One student was killed and another critically wounded after an accidental shooting during dismissal time at Huffman High School. It wasn't clear how the 14-year-old boy was wounded. Authorities said it wasn't clear how he was shot.

The school resource officer - St. Mary's County sheriff's Deputy Blaine Gaskill - was alerted to the gunfire and confronted the gunman in less than a minute, according to Cameron. He has been assigned to Great Mills as a school resource officer since the start of the school year.

"The words School & Shooting should not be next to each other". The shooter was killed.

Shots were fired inside a Maryland school Tuesday and the school was put on lockdown.
