A YouCaring fundraising page established for teen, which identifies him as Desmond Barnes, has generated more than $12,000 for his family as of Wednesday afternoon. Jaelynn Willey remains in critical condition at a hospital. Earlier this week, thousands of students across the U.S. walked out of their schools to call for action against gun violence precisely one month post the Florida shooting which claimed 17 lives. "I feel like if our (school resource officer) would have went in the building, the overall result would've been less bad".

A 16-year-old girl is fighting for her life after Tuesday's shooting in a Maryland high school.

"They're all different", Hoyer said of the school shootings that have occurred this year at a rate of "approximately two a week", but he added, "there is a common element".

After the Parkland shooting, Gov. Larry Hogan proposed spending $125 million next year to enhance security at schools in the state, including by reinforcing doors and installing panic buttons to prevent and react to shooters.

The sheriff initially told reporters Rollins shot both victims with a handgun, but then said in response to questions that investigators were still uncertain who fired the shot that hit the 14-year-old. That tally includes suicides and incidents when no one was injured, as well as the January shooting in which a 15-year-old gunman killed two fellow students at a Benton, Kentucky, high school.

Blaine Gaskill, a school resource officer assigned to guard Great Mills High School in Maryland, sprung into action to confront an active shooter at the school on Tuesday.

Shots were fired inside a Maryland school Tuesday and the school was put on lockdown.

The county sheriff said deputies are on the scene and that parents or guardians should stay away, going instead to Leonardtown High School to reunite with Great Mills students there. It is not yet clear whether Rollins died from the officer's bullet or killed himself.

A shooting was reported Tuesday morning at high school in southeast Maryland.

The attack, which lasted less than a minute, ended after the school resource officer, Deputy 1st Class Sheriff Blaine Gaskill, ran inside the building and engaged with Rollins, with both firing a single round nearly simultaneously. "Parents please DO NOT respond to the school".

Gaskill, Sheriff Cameron said at the time, "used exemplary judgment" in the situation, in which "realistic, relevant and constant training obviously paid off". The town in St. Mary's County, with a population of about 110,000, is about 65 miles (105 kilometers) from Washington, D.C.

Emma Gonzalez, a Stoneman Douglas student, tweeted her support Tuesday for her peers at Great Mills. "Our prayers are with students, school personnel, and first responders". "Most school shootings have been by students or former students".

"If you don't think this can't happen at your school, you are sadly mistaken", said James Scott Smith, the superintendent of Saint Mary's County Public Schools.

Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have also been sent to the school.

Heibel said, while choking back tears, "We are devastated and we are sadden but we will stay strong".
