2 seventeen year olds, one male, one female. The female was killed.

Not much information yet, watching local PD news conference. I'm thinking 2 thuglets being thuglets, but of course local politicos are screaming for gun bans

    Don't know what happened, but if the shooters aren't tried and convicted of murder, then there is no justice left.

    I'm thinking this was either a murder - attempted suicide or an attempted murder - suicide

    Lover's quarrel and the "dumpee" shot the one that dumped them, maybe????

    It wasn't "random" and local sources are backing off the "accidental" angle

    The school has metal detectors, but they were not being used? Someone has some splaining to do
