Note: This is my opinion and does not represent the opinion of others. This post refers to the shooting at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado on December 13, 2013. A student, Claire Davis, was shot at point blank range with a pump action shotgun and remains in critical condition. The shooter killed himself.
1. RAPID RESPONSE: The entire event was over in 80 seconds because the shooter knew the deputy sheriff and security guard were on their way to confront him. He was cornered and took his own life.
2. WEAPON: The shooter used a pump action shotgun and not an automatic or semi-automatic gun. A weapon such as the AK-47 can fire up to 600 rounds in one minute. The children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut were riddled with bullets on their tiny bodies.
3.TARGET: The target, a school librarian and debate coach, fled the area to put others out of danger.
