What a sad story.... And thread.

You didn't even put some quoted text from the article.

For anyone curious, the seventh grader is currently hospitalized and the condition is unknown.

Not clear how this is political.

Although the silver lining is that he didn't take anyone else with them...I hope.

As a fellow Ohioan.....

Nah screw that

As a fellow human on this planet we are temporarily trapped on.....

I'm so sorry for everyone who is suffering physically or mentally.

I don't know what "the answer" is. It seems to be different for everyone.

What worked for me has not worked for others and vice versa.

I will say this if you're reading my comment and you're in pain.... Please do not give up. Do not resort to Violence.

You can make it. Keep trudging.

One of the worse ways to try and top oneself using a gun the survival rate is pretty high.

I am curious where they have deemed this attempted suicide? Was there a note? It appears that it would be more logical that the student was going to impress a friend. Maybe even showing it off to another student? Gun goes off accidentally. Obviously, anyone there would run and hide, scared.

Attempted suicide in school bathroom just doesn't make sense with the limited details released.

That gave me a nice laugh, "kiss chase" that's adorable. Yeah. Some kids have it rough. Some kids minds twist and turn reality through a veil of pain and confusion. Who knows what the poor kid was going through or why- I just hope he's somewhere cool in the afterlife. Maybe finally forgetting his worries and getting a shot at kiss chase with the angels.

Yeah it sure sucks.
I hope he gets the help he needs and recovers.
I used to get trained by the UK's top suicide professor and he said everyone who survives a self inflicted gunshot wound he has ever met has a strong will to live afterwards.
I hope this young chap does.

MASSILLON, Ohio — Authorities say a seventh-grader who shot and injured himself inside an Ohio middle school bathroom also had a device in his backpack meant to cause a distraction.

Police emphasized the device wasn’t an explosive that would’ve harmed anyone.




i wonder if he had bigger plans... why did he have a 'distraction' device... where are these kids getting these guns from ffs...
