Sounds like it might of been a beef between 2 students.
My thoughts go out to the student who was injured but I for one am just relieved noone was killed.
Man, if only the shooter had read the sign saying "weapon free school zone", this event would've been completely avoided..... (End sarcasm)

Are you serious???? At the time that these students were being led out of the school the shooter was still active. That tells me that any one of these kids could have been the shooter. If it were, and he was allowed to put his hands in his pockets, he could have gotten a few more shots in while being escorted out.
The shooter could have very well been in line ,blending in with the rest of the kids

The whole "hands up! Single file!" Did seem a bit over the top to me, but at least the situation was brought under control and they have a suspect in custody.
I just can't get the evacuation procedure out of my head though. Why have the children have their hands up? No matter which way you look at it, it was totally unnecessary. If the shooter was still at large when they brought the kids out like that, all they did was give a lot of slow moving, open targets. If the suspect was already apprehended, all they did was add insult to injury, and instill more fear into the already terrified kids...
At any rate, I'm just happy the situation is somewhat resolved, without any fatalities
