The sad part is, this was miles away from my school. (For explanation about the Canada flag - I'm Canadian but I live in the USA) We even watched some footage during class.
This is terrible, sick, and I hope the person who did this gets the worst punishment possible. Who could do such a thing? The shooter can rot in hell for all I care. Imagine walking into school thinking you're "Well, another Monday" and then a shooter randomly opens fire.
