A School Shooting at a Maryland High School Had Students on Lockdown

After a shooting at Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County, Maryland this morning, the whole school was put on an emergency lock down. Jonathan Freese, a student at Great Mills, told CNN that he and his classmates were told to remain inside their math class while police went room to room and cleared each one. Only after that were the students and staff allowed to leave.

Last week, the students at Great Mills High School participated in a walk out to protest the unacceptable proliferation of school violence in America, and to support victims of the the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

According to CNN, this is the 17th school shooting this year.
