An authority who talked to NBC News had verified that the suspected gunman is already dead. In accordance to news reports, the shooter was 20-year-old man and two firearms were recovered from the crime scene.

One student who survived the shooting described the traumatic incident to the news team. He said that he was in the gym then he heard seven loud explosions of sorts. Upon hearing the explosions, the gym teachers ordered them to go in the corner and so they all huddled. Still terrified with his experience, he narrated that he kept hearing reverberating noises of gunshots. And they all started crying. All of their gym teachers asked them to go inside the office where not one person could locate them. Afterwards, a police officer stepped in and ordered them to run outside. They all did what the police officer said. They run into the firehouse and waited for their parents.
