It's been a few days since the last school shooting in Maryland. The victim, a 14-year-old student, has been taken off life support after being declared brain dead, and has since gone to meet her maker. (There was no word about organ donations, but that's a blog for another day, and actually none of our business anyway.)
The circumstances were tragic enough, and wikipedia describes the shooting
On March 20, 2018, 17-year-old student Austin Rollins opened fire in a hallway at the school with a 9mm Glock handgun, wounding 16-year-old student Jaelynn Willey before exchanging fire with school resource officer Blaine Gaskill, who had responded to the scene. A 14-year-old student, Desmond Barnes, was wounded, while Rollins was hit by Gaskill's return fire and later died at the hospital. Gaskill, 34, is a six-year veteran of the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office trained in special weapons and tactics. Rollins was previously in a relationship with Willey. The gun Rollins used was legally owned by his father, according to the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office. Willey was taken off life support on March 22, 2018, after being declared brain dead, and died soon after.
