“US school shooting: Gunman dies after being shot in Maryland
A gunman who shot and injured two students at a high school in the US state of Maryland has died of a gunshot wound, police say.
The two students are being treated in hospital. One is critically ill.
The attack happened on Tuesday morning before lessons at Great Mills High School in St Mary’s County, 65 miles (104km) south-east of Washington DC.
It comes a month after a high school shooter killed 17 in Parkland, Florida.
An armed campus guard exchanged gunfire with the attacker – who has not been identified – but it is unclear if the gunman was hit by the guard’s gunfire or shot himself.
St Mary’s County Sheriff Tim Cameron said the shooting began in a hallway at the school.
The gunman fired at a female and then a male student, hitting them both, he said.
“Our school resource officer who was stationed inside the school was alerted,” he told reporters.
“He pursued the shooter, engaged the shooter. During that engagement he fired a round at the shooter.”
