The suspect was identified as Orlando Harris

Believe it or not, Harris was actually a student at the school, and graduated last year. Despite him having no previous criminal history, the kid left a handwritten note in his car about his plan to carry out the school shooting, according to ABC News.

Allegedly the note read:

“I don’t have any friends, I don’t have any family, I’ve never had a girlfriend. I’ve never had a social life.”

Moreover, authorities said Monday there are “suspicion that there may be some mental illness that he was experiencing.” Seemingly there may have been some jealousy in the shooter that he was not a part of the student experience. Even still, that is no reason to open fire and kill innocent people. Regardless, may the two victims rest peacefully and may their families absolutely receive justice.
