Sheriff: Girl shoots 3 at Idaho school; teacher disarms her

Source: A

By REBECCA BOONE

BOISE, Idaho (AP) ó A sixth-grade girl brought a gun to her Idaho middle school, shot and wounded two students and a custodian and then was disarmed by a teacher Thursday, authorities said.

The three were shot in their extremities and were expected to survive, officials said at a news conference. Jefferson County Sheriff Steve Anderson says the girl pulled a handgun from her backpack and fired multiple rounds inside and outside Rigby Middle School in the small city of Rigby, about 95 miles (145 kilometers) southwest of Yellowstone National Park.

A female teacher disarmed the girl and held her until law enforcement arrived and took her into custody, authorities said, without giving other details. Authorities say theyíre investigating the motive for the attack and where the girl got the gun.

She is from the nearby city of Idaho Falls, Anderson said. He didnít release her name.

Hosts have limited the number of shooting posts in LBN. Becuase this was a sixth grader in school I posted it.

1. Six grader and a girl too. At least no one's dead. Good grief.

But the first paragraph says a girl.

5. I'm certain we'll hear the complaints that the teacher wasn't armed

How can you be the good-guy (-gal) without a gun?

7. Every child knows what a gun does.

Add easy access, impulsiveness, anger or fear...

Many kids wind up shooting themselves that way, rather than others. My niece went to school with one.

15. I'm 57 years old and still remember the name

of the 7th grade bully I would have shot had I been given a chance.

Thankfully I grew out of thinking that would be a suitable solution but there was certainly a time when that guy's death would have brought forth tears of relief and joy.
