Quote
Two students were injured when another student opened fire at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County, Md., according to the local sheriff. The shooter was confirmed dead after being taken to a hospital. "A male student produced a handgun and fired a round, wounding a female student and another male student in a hallway of Great Mills High School just before classes begun" before 8 a.m. Tuesday, St. Mary's County Sheriff Timothy Cameron told reporters at a news conference. The two victims have been taken to local hospitals. The male student is in stable condition, and the female student is in critical condition, Cameron stated.

A school resource officer engaged the shooter after he started firing, Cameron told reporters. The resource officer "fired a round at the shooter, simultaneously the shooter fired a round as well," Cameron said. They are investigating whether the officer's rounds struck the shooter, and the sheriff added that the officer was not injured. The identities of the victims and the shooter have not been released, nor is it clear what their relationship is to one another.

jfc, we can't go a month without another one of these, can we?

The psycho shot the girl because they had a relationship together previously. This is looking like an angered ex boyfriend playing copy cat. No mass shooting here. The other kid that got shot was accidental while the gunman and the officer exchanged fire. That's all they got so far. Looks like somebody is getting in trouble for that idiot stealing and using their gun.

The theory is that it's being "hidden" because a "good guy with guns" killed the shooter before it turned into a mass shooting.

If by "hidden" you mean "plastered all over every newspaper and news show", then uh, sure?

Good thing that the officer on site was brave enough to stop the shooting before it gets worse.

Good riddance to the would-be-shooter.

Actually it's not being publicized nearly as much as the Florida shooting. That was talked about on MSM for weeks. It was on CNN's website for like half a day and then removed. Why? Because the gun toting cop saved the day. Doesn't really fit the MSM agenda.

@ DNZRX768 - Right on. May God have mercy on him.

The shooter in Florida didn't get arrested by magic. Gun toting cops saved the day in Florida too.

But the Parkland shooting had 17 victims, the shooter survived the shooting, and the student survivors have made themselves the face of a movement calling for sensible gun control. This shooting only had two people injured, and the shooter was killed. Of course the first one is gonna generate tons more stories, there's so many angles to cover! There's just not that much that can be wrung out of this one, though.

MSM (I assume means "mainstream media") conspiracies aside, it was still a tragic incident concerning both victims.  I hope the doctors got this covered ^..^

Oh ok I get it. More deaths equals more coverage. Never mind the police officer that killed and stopped the shootings. No big cover story on him. Makes sense.

Well, you can't win it, if the shooter gets stopped before he can kill people, he was just a poor kid who got killed by the big meanie adult that uses guns.

Yes. That's literally how the news works. It's how it has always worked. It's like that old adage about man bites dog: "dog bites man" could theoretically be written up as story (in this instance, it would be a story about a police officer doing their job and subduing a criminal), but like, when you have to compete with all the other news coming out in these chaotic times, practically no one is gonna waste their very limited time and resources on a story like that.

This is certainly a sad, horrible event, but it is also not remotely as newsworthy as the Parkland shooting. There just isn't a ton of stuff to report on here.
