A gunman of 17 who shot and injured two teenage students at a high school in the U.S. state of Maryland was shot dead after a gunfight with a security guard.

The gunman was identified as Austin Wyatt Rollins, and Cameron said there was "an indication" of a prior relationship between him and the female student, though he said that was still under investigation.

Rollins shot a 16-year-old female, who was his former girlfriend and is now hospitalized in critical condition, and a 14-year-old boy, who is listed in good condition, authorities said.

The gunman died after a school resource officer fired at him, Mr Cameron said. "And to me it's outrageous that we haven't taken action yet on something so important as school safety", Hogan said. Within seconds, a school resources officer on the scene fired back.

"It happened really quickly, right after school started", Jonathan Freese, a Great Mills student, told CNN. This weekend, students across the country plan an anti-gun violence march on the nation's capital.

In the Parkland shooting, school resource deputy Scot Peterson never entered the building after taking a position outside.

"He had to cover significant ground", Cameron said.

Police did not identify the victims, but the family of 16-year-old Jaelynn Willey, a sophomore at Great Mills, confirmed that she had been shot.

Yet the 21-year age requirement, fingerprint requirement, fees, and licensing requirement, and sseven-day waiting period did not prevent 17-year-old Rollins from having a Glock 9mm pistol Tuesday morning. And my teacher went out and said that there was somebody on the floor. The students were transported by bus to Leonardtown High School where they were picked up by parents and guardians.

"They came in with guns, and they probably thought there might be another shooter, of course", she said.

The violence was the latest in a decades-long series of deadly gun attacks at American schools and colleges.

"They're all different", Hoyer said of the school shootings that have occurred this year at a rate of "approximately two a week", but he added, "there is a common element".

Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., also spoke to reporters near the high school, and expressing anger and saying that at a minimum, universal background checks and a ban on assault-style weapons are needed.

A student who said his name was Jonathan Freese said in a telephone interview on CNN that he had been on lockdown with classmates for almost an hour, but he did not hear gunshots himself. These are children, as Dr. Smith (St. Mary's County Schools Superintendent) said. The accused gunman, a 19-year-old former student expelled from the school for disciplinary reasons last year, was arrested and charged with 17 counts of murder. Investigators say Rollings fired his semi-automatic handgun at the same time.

Each jurisdiction throughout the state individually trains officers, with some coming from local police departments and others from county sheriff's offices.
