    Obvious cry for attention/help from another teen with problems.

    Put God back in schools, put pride in America back in schools, put the progressives out.

    When the shots were fired, the teacher tried to get the more than two dozen students out a back door and also engaged the shooter in conversation to distract him, Youngblood said. A campus supervisor responding to a call of shots fired also began talking to the gunman.

    “They talked him into putting that shotgun down. He in fact told the teacher, ‘I don’t want to shoot you, and named the person that he wanted to shoot,” Youngblood said.

    The shooter planned the attack and specifically targeted two students he felt had bulled him for more than a year. The 16-year-old used a shotgun that belonged to his brother.
