Maryland school shooter shot dead by hero armed school officer – 2 students injured

Here’s what we - as a nation - are up against. It’s subtle sometimes, and bold others. I was looking for this story last night, to post for discussion here. I scanned headlines after googling ‘Maryland shooting’ and as of page 4, no headline indicated an armed school official stopped the killer. (Interesting that Safari included some words about armed official) Everything via any media is messaging those who view or read their content. We can say all day long that it’s not a left-right issue, but it is. Headlines should, by any journalistic standard, reflect facts. That a key fact is omitted in nearly all major news outlet should scream at people who have not lost the power to think!

I said after the Parkland killings, that there are more shooters out there and they’re already in possession of a gun. Well, I’m saying now again that there are more out there. We must operate in the world in which we are living, not the one we wish it to be. Knee-jerk reactive measures about gun purchases will do nothing. Neither side comes to the discussion table with intellectual honesty about guns and gun rights, or the discussions would be totally different.

Maryland school shooter shot dead by hero armed school officer – 2 students injured

The shooter is dead and two others are injured after a school shooting at Great Mills High School in Great Mills, Maryland on Tuesday.

The shooter, 17-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins, has been confirmed dead after being brought to a local hospital, and two other students, a 14-year-old male and 16-year-old female, are injured – the female student was at one point in critical condition, officials reported.

St. Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron said the school resource officer fired and exchanged shots with the shooter, who was fatally shot. The SRO is a former SWAT member.

The school resource officer was “alerted and immediately responded and engaged the shooter,” who had a handgun, Cameron said during a second press conference Tuesday. “He fired at the shooter, [and] almost simultaneously the shooter fired.”

“First aid was immediately initiated, to include a tourniquet on the shooter and CPR,” Cameron said.


The Sheriff also said officials are investigating a possible motive, as it is believed there was a prior relationship between the shooter and the female victim.

“Our school resource officer was alerted to the event. He pursued the shooter, engaged the shooter, fired a round at the shooter,” Cameron had said earlier. “The shooter fired a round, as well.”

The school went on lockdown Tuesday morning as the news broke across the country. It was initially reported that three people were hurt, including the shooter. No other details were given at that time as to their status, or if there were other injuries or fatalities.

A local ABC affiliate had reported that sources said the alleged shooter – who has not yet been identified – was a student, and that the shooter was one of three injured.

ABC7 also reported that a school resource officer responded and took action to stop the active shooter situation.


The St. Mary’s County Public School District tweeted around 10 a.m. EST that students were being evacuated and bused to the reunification center at Leonardtown High School’s campus. More than 1,400 students were evacuated.

“The building is orderly and the Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation. We will continue to update as more information becomes available,” the SMCPS district tweeted.


When news of the shooting first broke, officials had said the event was contained, but there were reports of multiple injuries.

The school district tweeted and confirmed the shooting early Tuesday.

FBI and ATF agents also responded.

You don't hear about this on the news because it does not fit the narrative for the left. Good guy with a gun, kills bad guy with a gun! Noooo, we can't say that, can we?

No, and that’s exactly what’s happening.  Like Jodi said her Tids...with that bombing, are they going after packages, or the person?

Most days, I just shake my head and wonder how we got so far off track in the country. A lot of times I say things that I could never type in here too. 

IN GOD WE TRUST.  Politicians are not God although some seem to think they are.  In politicians we do not trust.
