Police Say Student Involved In Md. School Shooting Took His Own Life

While the school resource officer, Deputy Blaine Gaskill, did respond to the scene quickly, and did shoot at the gunman, investigators have determined that the shooter shot himself in the head moments before the school resource officer shot at him, hitting the gunman's weapon.

The 17-year-old Great Mills High School student who shot and killed a 16-year-old and injured another student at school died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday.

Rollins then turned a corner and passed several classrooms before the confrontation with the school resource officer, which occurred about three minutes after shooting Willey, the sheriff's office said. Rollins shot himself in the head with a Glock handgun that his father legally owned, and Gaskill fired, hitting the gun in the teen's hand.

Austin Wyatt Rollins parked his auto at 7:50 a.m.at the entrance of Great Mills High School in southern Maryland.

Willey died late Thursday, hours after her parents announced they would take her off life support. Barnes was treated at a hospital and released a day after the shooting. Officials said Jaelynn and the suspect were in a relationship that had recently ended. Led by survivors of a Florida high school shooting in February that claimed 17 lives, the marchers called on lawmakers and President Donald Trump to confront the issue after decades of shooting sprees at USA schools and colleges. The same bullet traveled into the leg of Desmond Barnes, who had sought shelter in a classroom. Authorities said Rollins "simultaneously fired a shot as well; Rollins sustained a life threatening injury from the exchange".

"I was just shot in my school", Barnes said in the 15-minute recording.

"The girl outside, I can see with, like, a pool of blood on the ground coming from, like it. looks like her head", the caller said.
