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 added that was still under investigation.

Two students are injured - one of which is in critical condition - after a school shooting took place Tuesday at Great Mills High School in southern Maryland.

Sheriff's deputy Blaine Gaskill, a five-year law enforcement veteran assigned last summer as Great Mills' school resource officer, fired a round at Rollins, who "fired a round as well" during that confrontation, Cameron said. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. Another boy was wounded and the shooter was mortally wounded as he and a law officer each fired a round during a confrontation.
