Speaking at a news conference, St. Mary's County Tim Cameron says the male student was armed with a handgun Tuesday morning when he wounded a female student and a male student just before classes began at Great Mills High School in southern Maryland.

A YouCaring page set up for Barnes raised more than $10,000 by Wednesday morning. Jaelynn Willey remains in critical condition at a hospital.

Sen. Benjamin Cardin, D-Md., said, "having a trained, professional school resource officer made a difference. armed school resource officers are available in our high schools and that's important". "The shooter fired a round as well".

It occurred amid a re-energized national debate over school shootings in the United States following an attack on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a gunman killed 17 students and faculty.

The wounded girl was listed in critical condition at Prince George's Hospital Center, the sheriff said during a pair of press briefings after the shooting, and MedStar St. Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown reported shortly before midday that the 14-year-old male wounded student was listed in good condition.

"They're all different", Hoyer said of the school shootings that have occurred this year at a rate of "approximately two a week", but he added, "there is a common element".

Deputies are still investigating the motive of the shooting.

Cameron said Rollins fired a Glock 9-mm gun at a 16-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy. "The officer was not harmed, the sheriff said".

Great Mills High School is in St. Mary's County, which is about 110 km south of Washington.

That massacre sparked a new student movement against gun violence, including a national school walkout last week that Great Mills students participated in. Rollins simultaneously fired a shot, but it's also unclear if he was aiming at the school resource officer.

Further information about Rollins was not immediately available.A Facebook page under the name of "Austin Rollins" depicted a teenager who attends Great Mills High School and is interested in auto racing and kayaking.

One of the shooter's friends, 14-year-old Jordan Hutchinson, and his mother dropped off a condolence card at the Rollins home.

The officer ordered the student to drop the gun again, before two shots sounded, marking the end of the latest school shooting for a nation tired of them.

The sheriff praised the school resource officer, Deputy First Class Blaine Gaskill, a six-year veteran in his first year at the high school, for containing the situation in less than a minute.
