On Monday a man opened fire at St. Louis Missouri High school; killing two people and getting himself shot and killed by the police. Since the incident, amid investigation, some details have been uncovered about the killer. Apparently, the 19 yr. old was armed with an AR-15 rifle loaded with more than 600 rounds of ammunition.
The Two Victims Have Been Identified
Alexzandri Bell, 15, and PE teacher Jean Kuczka, 61 were the two who didn’t make it through the shooting alive, unfortunately.
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.”news conference
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.
