On Thursday, a school shooting occurred at the local high school in Idaho. The perpetrator was a 6th Grade girl who brought a Weapon to the School and Openely Fired. She wounded three students and was then taken into custody by police officers on site. The president’s efforts include setting rules for certain guns, bolstering background checks and supporting local violence prevention programs. Last month the President described the level of gun violence in this country as an “international embarrassment”.
A lone shooter opened fire at Idaho high school, injuring multiple people. Authorities have responded to reports of shots fired at the Jefferson County High School just outside of Boise on Tuesday morning and evacuated students from building where they encountered blood stains as well as bullet holes inside classrooms and hallways. The suspect has been taken into custody by law enforcement officers who found her climbing out one window before being apprehended nearby
Dr. Michael Lemon of Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center said that one student might need to undergo surgery for a bullet wound and another was stabbed in two limbs during the deadly firing at their high school campus on Tuesday morning. He told reporters that they have been practicing mass casualty situations with other schools so when this violent event occurred, our trauma center had already prepared itself for it.”
“Schools will be closed Friday and counselors are available to help students who were in the school at the time of this tragedy. Chad Martin, Superintendent for Central Bucks Schools said that he feels blessed by how minor all injuries have been so far.”
In light of these events, it is important for us to understand how exactly this could happen and what we can do about it moving forward.
The Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center trauma medical director told a news conference that they were prepared for the worst when today’s shooting happened. “With the assistance of other high schools, we have actually run mock-shooting, mass-casualty situations,” he said before going on to say how one student might require surgery and another had been wounded in two limbs but is expected to be okay. One member of staff was shot during the attack–a female who underwent treatment and went home afterward without any complications from her injury!
“The local school’s superintendent, Chad Martin, said that due to the seriousness of this morning’s events across their district – not saying they’re insignificant but could’ve been much worse – it is enough for them to feel blessed. Schools are closed on Friday and counselors will be available.”
