'We need more than prayers' | Md. Governor responds to school shooting

There has been a shooting at Great Mills High School More

The two victims have been taken to local hospitals.

A 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were wounded and taken to hospitals.

'There is an indication that a prior relationship existed between the shooter and the female victim, ' Sheriff Cameron said.

Cameron said the security officer fired a shot at Rollins, but it was not immediately clear if the officer struck the gunman or whether he had committed suicide.

The shooting, which played out against a rancorous national debate over arming teachers and putting more officers in schools, was notable because authorities credited St. Mary's County Deputy Blaine Gaskill with possibly saving lives by quickly engaging the shooter. Julie Yingling says there are injuries Tuesday at Great Mills High School but she didn't know how many or the severity of the injuries.

The school went into lockdown Tuesday after the reported shooting.

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.

The shooter was identified as Austin Rollins, 17.

Following the shooting in Great Mills, located about a 90-minute drive southeast of the USA capital Washington, students were evacuated to a nearby school where they were reunited with their parents, Cameron said. Gaskill is also a member of the local SWAT team and joined the sheriff's office six years ago. "And to me it's outrageous that we haven't taken action yet on something so important as school safety", Hogan said. "Right in the moment, it was really scary".

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said their agents are on the scene assisting the sheriff's department. "That our greatest asset, our children, were attacked in one of our places of ... safety and security, one of our schools". Many students across the country are calling for effective gun controls, leading up to Saturday's March For Our Lives rally in the nation's capital against gun violence in schools.

Police increased their presence at the high school, according to TheBayNet.com, though the threat was not substantiated.

Deputies, the school nursing staff and others provided first aid to the three teens who were shot, including applying a tourniquet and performing CPR, Cameron said.

"It's like 5-miles off-campus", said 18-year-old college student, Nicole Krutzing, "You hear about it on the news and then when it happens in a place that's close to home...it's like Great Mills, 'Oh that's right down the road, ' it's unusual". Rollins reportedly stormed into the facility armed with a handgun.

The latest in a long string of deadly shootings at US schools and colleges occurred little more than a month after 14 students and three faculty members were fatally shot on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Police yesterday said they had arrested two suspected criminals who claimed to be working with the lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the Senate, Dino Melaye. "The notion of "it can't happen here" is no longer a notion".

The walkout, which marked a month since the Parkland massacre, was organized as a call on Congress to tighten gun laws.

"We are Here for you, students of Great Mills", Gonzalez said.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said in a statement: "Our prayers are with students, school personnel, and first responders".

House Speaker Michael Busch, a Democrat, said Tuesday that his chamber has every intention of passing a Safe Schools Act.
