Sheriff: Md. school shooter killed self

Sheriff: Md. school shooter killed self

The student who fatally shot a female classmate last week at a Maryland high school died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound during a confrontation with a school resource officer who also fired his gun, authorities said Monday.

"Rollins continued walking through the school, and was confronted by School Resource Officer", the sheriff's office states.

Initial reports suggested that Deputy First Class Blaine Gaskill, the resource officer at Great Mills High School, in Great Mills, Md., might have killed the shooter, 17-year-old Austin Rollins.

Prior to their investigation, authorities had been unsure whether the officer or the suspect fired the fatal shot.

Desmond Barnes, a 14-year-old student, was struck in the leg by the same bullet that hit Willey, the sheriff said. Gov. Larry Hogan, R, praised Gaskill last week for going after Rollins, saying the deputy's actions prevented further casualties.

The gunman behind a shooting at Great Mills High School in Maryland on Tuesday has died from his own fatal shot to the head.

Gaskill had arrived within a minute of Rollins shooting 16-year-old Jaelynn Willey in a hallway at Great Mills High School.

Police put together a timeline showing how the shooting unfolded.

"Oh, my knee hurts bad", Barnes is heard in a 911 recording the sheriff's office also released Monday.

"We're getting help to you Desmond", the dispatcher replied. "I need you to stay calm".

During the call, Barnes is heard in the background calling his mother telling her he has been shot but assuring her he is OK.

Barnes and the dispatcher talk again.

Within three minutes of the shooting, Gaskill confronted Rollins in the hallway.

Rollins held the gun to his head and Gaskill had ordered him to drop it, student witnesses told WJLA.

A woman, possibly a teacher, gets on the phone and tells the dispatcher that four students are inside her classroom, one of them shot and bleeding.

Rollins has since died from his injuries after allegedly shooting two other students, one of whom later died from her injuries.
