0 Comment

A student gunman who opened fire inside his southeast Maryland high school Tuesday morning — wounding two teens — was shot by a school safety officer and later died at a local hospital, authorities said.

Austin Wyatt Rollins, 17, whipped out a Glock 9-mm. handgun and shot a 16-year-old girl, whom he possibly had a relationship with, inside Great Mills High School just before 8 a.m., police said.

A 14-year-old boy was also wounded, but officials said it wasn’t clear who shot him. He was hospitalized in good condition.

Blaine Gaskill, a resource officer who also serves as a SWAT team member, rushed to the hallway where Rollins was, and the two fired at each other.

The officer wasn’t hurt, but his bullet struck Rollins.

Rollins was rushed to a nearby hospital where he died at about 10:40 a.m., according to St. Mary’s County Sheriff Timothy Cameron.

Investigators were still trying to determine if Rollins killed himself or if Gaskill fatally shot him.

The girl, who was identified by local media as Jaelynn Willey, is in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
