At Great Mills High School in Maryland, 17-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins used his father’s handgun to shoot a girl he just broken up with along with another classmate. Rollin’s handgun used in the shooting was legally owned by his father.Rollins targeted 16-year-old Jaelynn Willey, who remains in critical condition at the local hospital. The 14-year-old boy who “happened to be in a hallway when Rollins opened fire was released after being treated for a gunshot wound to the leg” (Nbcnews.com).Police doesn’t know how Rollins was able to get his father’s gun or what kind of gun it was or what caliber that gun is. The gunman was killed in an exchange of fire with the school’s resource officer. The Washington Post, who has done a number of analysis of school shootings, reported that this was the second time since the 1999 Columbine high School Massacre, that a school resource officer killed the active shooter (Nbcnews.com).

All indications suggest that the shooting was not a random act of violence. The police say that it will be impossible to determine the motive behind the shooting because he is now dead. Any attempts to contact Rollins’ family were unsuccessful (Time.com).
