On Friday, April 20, a gunman was inside a school in Ocala, Florida. 19-year-old Sky Bouche, a former student at Forest High School, brought in a sawed-off shotgun and stashed it away in his guitar case.
The shooting started at 8:39 a.m. Friday morning, according to CBS News.
Once Bouche was inside the school’s bathroom, he began putting on a tactical vest and gloves, according to The Washington Post.
Bouche was equipped and eager to start his killing spree. He left the bathroom with his sawed-off shotgun and approached a classroom. Fortunately, the door was locked. He took his gun and shot at the door anyway.
One 17-year-old male student was injured in the ankle from the shrapnel.
The gunman dropped his weapon and took off as the school was now in “code red.” Bouche tried to blend in, but a teacher confronted him.
Kelly McManis-Panasuk noticed Bouche and asked if he had shot the gun. He said that he did. At the same time, the School Resource Officer Deputy James Long was rushing towards the gunfire and noticed McManis-Panasuk with Bouche. Long had Bouche in custody at 8:42 a.m.
