The officer who fired at a student gunman at Great Mills High School in Maryland on Tuesday morning is Deputy First Class Blaine Gaskill, a 34-year-old St. Mary's County sheriff's deputy with SWAT training who regularly provided security at the school.

The female victim is in critical condition and the male student is in good condition at the MedStar St. Mary's Hospital, located about 15 minutes away from the school.

A teenager with a handgun shot a girl inside his Maryland high school Tuesday before he was fatally wounded during a confrontation with a school resource officer, a sheriff said.

On Tuesday morning at 7:55 am, shots were fired at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's county, Maryland.

Following the horrific tragedy in Parkland, Florida, President Trump has repeatedly called for arming up to 20 percent of school staff members as a means to safeguard students and prevent future mass shootings.

Under the banner #ENOUGH, tens of thousands of United States high school students walked out of classrooms around the country on March 14 to protest gun violence.

The shooting comes less than a month after the school was allegedly prompted to alert parents about an investigation into a threat on the school - and Snapchat warnings about an impending shooting.

"He had to cover significant ground", Cameron said.


Hoyer earlier renewed his call for more stringent background checks on would-be gun purchasers, and the governor spoke of current school-safety legislation in Annapolis, along with the need for "taking guns out of the hands of the mentally ill".

The refrain of "thoughts and prayers", as well as the biggest USA gun lobby, the NRA, have become targets of ire from the student movement. Threats against schools have proliferated as well, and Great Mills High has not been immune.

The latest in a long string of deadly shootings at USA schools and universities took place a little more than a month after 17 students and educators were shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. "Together we can stop this from ever happening again". "I do always feel safe, though, because they always have police at the school", he said. Other students of the school were evacuated to another school to be reunited with their parents.

"He pursued the shooter, engaged the shooter - during that engagement, he fired a round at the shooter", Cameron said.

From Arizona to Washington DC, students have walked out of classrooms to protest gun violence after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

One Twitter user Mollie Davis, claiming to be a student at the school, posted a message online saying: "There was a loud sound and everyone started screaming and running". These are children, as Dr. Smith (St. Mary's County Schools Superintendent) said.

This is a tough guy who apparently closed in very quickly and took the right kind of action. The cop was unhurt but the student was wounded and later died, the sheriff said.

Authorities said the situation was "contained" as deputies and federal agents converged on the crime scene.
