Flashback- It began when Morrison walked into the building, opened fire and claimed to have explosives. He separated the males from the females and held six of the girls. A young girl was released shortly after, then hours later, three others were allowed to leave.

Wegener said authorities decided to enter the school to save the two remaining hostages after Morrison cut off negotiations and set a deadline. He said authorities used explosives as they entered the classroom, only to have the suspect fire at officers, shoot one of the girls and then himself.

 

Duane Morrison, 53, has been identified as the gunman who took six girls hostage in a high school classroom, killing one.

“My decision was to either wait, with the possibility of having two dead hostages, or act to try and save what I feared he would do to them,” the sheriff said.

Cassidy Grigg, 16, a student at the school, said the gunman walked in, fired one shot at the floor and ordered the students to line up. He told the boys to leave and the girls to stay.

“You could tell that he wanted the females,” Cassidy told NBC’s Today show on Thursday. “He tapped me on the shoulder and he told me to leave the room. I told him, ‘I don’t want to leave.”‘

 

Grigg said the gunman told him that if he refused to leave, he would kill him. The student said he wanted to stay to give support to the girls in the classroom.

    I wonder how long it took SWAT to arrive. That is kind of out in the middle of nowhere.
    One armed teacher could have stopped it.

    The link says this happened in 2006 (confirmed by wikipedia). Was it posted to highlight the fact that he was not a legal gun-owner (as noted under the photo)?

    Now see if the liberals in Colorado passed a law saying felons aren’t allowed to have a gun, walk into a school, single out females, and sexually assault female underage students this all could’ve been prevented.

    and because its 2013 they need to include lesbians, just in case.
