Did the school not see there was an issue with this student? Nor the prior school? This is a public school issue; we are not paying close enough attention to our students. Adolescence is a difficult transition for those with a support system. Not to mention today’s world of multiple biased opinions on ethnicity, sexuality, etc. How is it that this child felt the need to use a gun? Could no one have stopped him/her before he/she got to this point? Where’s the school counselor and/or teachers that could have noticed something out of the ordinary? It’s such a shame that public schools have such a high student to teacher/faculty ratio that we can not monitor the mental health of each child appropriately.
Prayers for everyone involved.

Nothing is worth or justified in taking someone else’s life when unneeded. It is beyond words unfair. God please speak to those in trouble and in conflict to show them paths to make improvements in their lives and their friends and families lives in ways that are healthy, safe, and not harmful. These kids need to know violence and drugs is NEVER the answer. Prayers to the family and friends of the boy.

Time for metal detectors at the doors to the schools. Just like they had to do in Boston, MA to prevent guns, knives/shives and other killing objects to protect the innocents from dying. Just so they could obtain a decent education. “How sad is that”

Why don’t they show a picture of the deceased and the accused. Prayers for all involved.
