A 12 year old armed with a semi automatic handgun opened fire in a classroom killing a teacher and wounding two of his classmates. 20-30 students saw what happened. One student who was there said “A kid started getting mad and he pulled out a gun and shoots my friend, one of my friends at least. And then he walked up to a teacher and says back up. Another student said he heard about 6 shots and said “I heard him saying, ‘Why you people making fun of me, why you laughing at me?” The teacher has been identified as 45 year old math instructor Michael Landsberry. Landsberry was described by family as a former marine who was trying to get the student to put the weapon down, “(He was) probably trying to stop that kid from hurting himself or anyone else.” The shooter’s identity has not yet been released but he took his own life on the scene.” Classes at the school have been cancelled for the rest of the week and counselors will be on hand to work with staff and students.

Since then, however, the annual average has tripled, and so far in 2013, there have been at least 12 of them.
