St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron told WRC-TV, the NBC affiliate in Washington, that a male student at the high school opened fire on a female student shortly after school started. A second male student also was shot. Cameron said the school resource officer then fired his own weapon at the gunman, bringing the violence to an end. The gunman was later pronounced dead, and the girl was critically injured, WRC reported. The third student also is being treated for a gunshot wound.
