My thought is, where did this kid get the gun? If it was from his home, then his parents should be arrested for not keeping that gun secured. I am very thankful that no student was killed.

My prayers to the injured student, the students/staff traumatized by this, and to those officers that put their lives on the line daily. God bless you all!!

Thank you Prey4Police I'm sure the investigation will address the guns source, and many more questions. No doubt any crime committed will be addressed by prosecutors.
