It turns out there was more than one school shooting Monday.
A 13-year-old student opened fire near a Phoenix elementary school Monday after he was suspended for behavioral problems on Aug.21, police said.
The unidentified teenager fired a handgun near the Maurice C. Cash Elementary School around lunchtime, according to the Arizona Republic. No injuries were reported.
The student was suspended last week, but returned to school grounds Monday and fired two to four rounds into the air after being approached by a school official, Phoenix Police Department spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump told the newspaper.
The teen fled to a nearby home, where he was later taken into police custody.
Authorities found several firearms in the backyard of the home.
The school shooting comes that same day a student shot and critically wounded a classmate at a suburban Baltimore high school.
A 15-year-old student reportedly shot a 17-year-old classmate in the back in the cafeteria of Perry Hall High School around 10:30 a.m.
The unidentified victim was taken by helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he was listed in critical condition.
The unidentified suspect was arrested.
Parents PLEASE watching your kids! Where are these kids getting guns from??? How are their parents not aware that they have serious issues? This is just horrible. It’s just fortunate that no one was hurt in this case, but it could have been so much worse.
