Nice work Deputy Gaskill!
The school shooting was over in seconds. But it could have dragged on longer and proven deadlier were it not for the rapid response of a school resource officer.
[CNN article here.]
When a 17-year-old gunman walked into Maryland's Great Mills High School on Tuesday, the swift action of the school's sole resource officer, Blaine Gaskill, was instrumental in bringing the incident to a quick end.
Gaskill's response was hailed as an example of exactly what a resource officer is supposed to do in such a circumstance.
"He responded exactly how we train our personnel to respond," St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron told reporters.
It takes courage and self-sacrifice to deal with active shooter incidents like this, but so many at this school benefited from these actions.
Thank you for your service Deputy Gaskill and all others in the first responder community!
