Bellingham superintendent responds to Spokane school shooting

The suspect has been charged with one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder after a deadly shooting at the at Freeman High School on Wednesday, the Spokane County sheriff's office said in a statement.

Students ran for cover, except for one, identified by authorities as Sam Strahan.

As the community mourned the death of the boy who was killed, people came together to worship and pray. Sharpe claimed he had been seeing a school counselor for suicidal thoughts. After attempting to fire one weapon that jammed, he moved on to the next one, Knezovich said.

Police said Sharpe shot Strahan in the abdomen near classroom 211, opposite a row of lockers.

Knezovich added the shooter fired more rounds down the hallway. Three teenage girls - Emma Nees, Jordyn Goldsmith and Gracie Jensen - were sent to the emergency room at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where hospital officials said they are in stable condition.

Sharpe played the Cowardly Lion and Rapunzel's prince, Stuart says.

During all this, Strahan (identified in the court documents as S.D.S.) allegedly saw him and said "I always knew you were going to shoot up the school" and "You know that is going to get you in trouble". All Freeman School District and all Spokane School District schools went into lockdown but the Spokane District lifted the lockdown just before 11:30 a.m. Doctors said Wednesday they were expected to recover. The Spokesman-Review has reported that Sharpe and Strahan were friends.

Sharpe was armed with an "automatic rifle and automatic handgun" that he'd gotten from his father's arsenal and that he carried to school on the bus in a "black sports style duffel bag", the papers say.

Witnesses described a panicked scene when shots rang out, with bullets hitting the ceiling and students screaming and running down the hallway.

Schaeffer, who didn't release any information about a possible motive, said the shooting was especially hard for first responders, many of whom have children at the school.

Specialists say the 15-year-old suspect in a lethal shooting at a Washington state secondary school brought two weapons from home and had self-destructive contemplations.

It's been reported that the teen's social media accounts contained photos and videos of him shooting guns, and he showed off his love for weapons on his YouTube page.

The teen says the suspect was not bullied and referenced him as "nice and amusing and weird".

Knezovich declined to discuss what detectives believed motivated the shooting, but cited mental health issues and suggested Sharpe may have been influenced by violence on television and in video games. Inslee promised that Washington State Patrol and all state agencies will do whatever they can to provide support and comfort.
