A YouCaring fundraising page has been set up on behalf of Jaelynn Willey in order to aid the family in covering her medical bills. Police said they obtained a search warrant that led to them finding semi-automatic rifles, handguns and other weapons, along with ammunition.

Minutes later, some of the school's almost 1,600 students were being escorted by an adult behind the main building as first responders continued securing the area.

It's the 17th school shooting in the United States since January 1.

Gaskill, 34, is a well-trained WAT team officer, familiar with engaging threats with speed.

"We recently had a protest about school violence last week, and now this has happened", said Kameron Norwood, 16, as he and other students who had been transported to a nearby high school waited for to relatives to pick them up.

The 16-year-old girl was hospitalized in a life-threatening condition with critical injuries, the sheriff said.

The incident unfolded on Tuesday morning, when a student walked into Great Mills High School and shot a female student in the hallway, according to St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron.

Cameron told a news conference that the shooter - who died after being confronted by a school resource officer - has been identified as a 17-year-old boy.

A sheriff says the school resource officer who shot at the suspect during a shooting at a Maryland high school is unhurt.

Simpson has also gotten more comfortable running pick-and-roll sets for MI on offense and creating open shots for teammates. MI trailed 63-61 in the final minute, and that could have been even a wider lead if the Cougars had hit some foul shots.

The gunman was identified as Austin Wyatt Rollins, and Cameron said there was "an indication" the teenager had a prior relationship with the female student, though it was still under investigation.

Rollins was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

It remains unclear whether the attacker was killed by school guards.

School principal Jake Heibel told parents staff and cops had interviewed pupils and found no valid threat, but additional security was in place.

A high school shooting in the U.S. state of Maryland on Tuesday has resulted in the death of the shooter and two others being injured, officials said. His letter was posted on the local news site The Bay Net.

"We join the Maryland State Education Association and Education Association of St. Mary's County in calling for policy changes that will end these preventable and traumatic events". Julie Yingling says three people, including the shooter, were injured in Tuesday's shooting.

Gaskill, Sheriff Cameron said at the time, "used exemplary judgment" in the situation, in which "realistic, relevant and constant training obviously paid off". "I just want to know who did it and who got injured". "So if he would have been a couple minutes earlier, he would have been right in the same area", she said.

"This [Great Mills High School] armed school resource officer, you're not hearing anyone in #MSM talk about it because it disrupts their narrative", NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch saidin one of several tweets Tuesday.

The sheriff's office on the scene is working with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as FBI agents from the Baltimore office.
