Gun Used in Maryland High School Shooting was Legally Owned by Shooter’s Father

The handgun used in Tuesday’s shooting at Great Mills High School in Southern Maryland was legally owned by the shooter’s father, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

Austin Wyatt Rollins, 17, brought a Glock 9-millimeter pistol to the school and opened fire in a hallway at about 7:50 a.m., injuring a 16-year-old girl and striking a 14-year-old boy in the leg, according to the sheriff’s office. A school resource officer quickly responded and fired at Rollins. Rollins fired his gun almost simultaneously.
