SEATTLE - A student gunman fired off two shots inside a Washington state high school on Monday and was tackled by a teacher before anyone was hurt, police and students said.

The student, armed with a revolver, shot off two rounds that struck the ceiling inside a stairwell between the first and second floors of North Thurston High School in Lacey, about five miles east of the state capital of Olympia, said Lacey police commander Joe Upton.

A staff member at the school tackled the male student before more shots could be fired, Upton said.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, the latest in a growing list of school shootings that have sparked a national conversation about gun control and school safety.

Police have taken the boy into custody and the investigation was continuing, he said. The student gunman's age and grade were not yet known.

Police rushed to the building just as students were arriving for the day around 7:30 a.m., authorities said.

Incidents involving guns can be resolved without other bystanders having guns?? Impossible!!

He was blessed beyond measure. Just glad he was able to stop this before any lives were lost.

I think we'll find out very soon that this was a staged incident. Could never happen in real life. It's all part of the Obama campaign to disarm America. FEMA camps are being prepped as I type this.

:rofl::rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

If the b a l l s are itching, Obama is tickling them. hahaha :rofl:

This is too close to home , two incidents in our local high schools within a year


The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.

Do they allow teachers to carry guns?

Doesn't look like it. But this person was stopped without a gun, and no lives were lost.
