Swimmer in Critical Condition After Great Mills High School Shooting

Great Mills High School

When the commotion about someone with a gun began Tuesday, Isiah Tichenor, 18, stepped into the hallway at Great Mills High School to pull shut his classroom's door, but instead found himself watching the climax of a school shooting.

'You train to respond to this and you hope that you never ever have to, ' the Sheriff said.

Great Mills High School is located in southern Maryland, about 60 miles southeast of Washington, D.C.

The sheriff initially told reporters Rollins shot both victims with a handgun, but then said in response to questions that investigators were still uncertain who fired the shot that hit the 14-year-old.

Her daughter's stalker was not the man who shot the school, Taylor said.

A student shot and critically wounded two fellow students at a Maryland high school before a campus security officer ended the attack by wounding the shooter yesterday morning. Politicians were quick to respond to yet another school shooting, calling for action against gun violence.

Students at the school participated in student protests last week against gun violence. Governor Larry Hogan (R) addressed the situation offering his prayers for the families affected by the act of domestic terrorism, while reminding the American public that prayers are "not enough"; that action will continue to be quintessential in securing changes.

"It's like 5-miles off-campus", said 18-year-old college student, Nicole Krutzing, "You hear about it on the news and then when it happens in a place that's close to home...it's like Great Mills, 'Oh that's right down the road, ' it's unusual".

Two witnesses, who do not attend the school, told WUSA9's Mike Valerio that they were on a school bus leaving the high school parking lot when they saw students just running out of the building. "Jaelynn is an wonderful young lady, whose peaceful presence and love of her fellow students and family is known throughout her Maryland-based school", the statement reads. "I just thank God I'm safe", Rhames said.

Yingling says the two victims were shot, but she doesn't know how the shooter was injured.

So far, this year, there have already been 17 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed. Those same students were evacuated from class on Tuesday. We do know a shot was sacked from Rollins' gun the same time the SRO opened fire.

Deputy Blaine Gaskill, the SRO, had SWAT training and been assigned to Great Mills since the beginning of the school year, Baltimore Sun reported. The girl's family has identified her as Jaelynn Willey.

It will take time for the school community to process and heal from the incident, he said.

The school was placed on lockdown, as well as nearby schools.

Heibel said, while choking back tears, "We are devastated and we are sadden but we will stay strong. But we don't have action", said the No. 2 U.S. House Democrat, Steny Hoyer, who represents the area in Congress.

Smith said there will be more discussion in the next few days and weeks about hardening our schools.

The survivors are organizing a national demonstration for gun control laws on March 24 called March for Our Lives.

Cpl. Julie Yingling, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office, said Wednesday morning that there was no new information to share in the investigation.
