Perry Hall High School Shooter ID Appears Confirmed: 10th grader
Based on the Fox report below, it would appear to support the information on the Perry Hall High School shooting posted here.
The gunman, who students told CBS Baltimore was a 10th grade boy, opened fire in the school cafeteria, striking the 17-year-old. Before he could fire another round, a teacher tackled the boy, forcing his shot into the ceiling.
A school police officer who was on the scene arrested the boy with the help of a number of teachers, who corralled the shooter by a vending machine.
“Student safety is our first and foremost priority,” Baltimore County School Superintendent Dallas Dance said. He commended school staff for taking action when the shooter opened fire and added that everyone followed the school emergency plan for active shooter situations.
Students told CBS Baltimore that they were under lockdown for as many as two hours after the shooting.
Parents speaking with CBS Baltimore pointed to a Facebook update that was allegedly posted hours before the shooting. In part, it said ”first day of school, last day of my life.”
