    the shots occurred around 3:45 p.m.

    if the article is correct and multiple shots were fired it makes the accidental story a lttle weak

    Maybe two school thugs got in a scrap with the schools armed guard. And a accidental shooting took place.

    Sadly, that's my old HS (the old buildings were torn down and rebuilt a few years back - looks like a prison now). Was one of the best public schools in the state back then. The whole area around it is bad now (and has been getting worse for the last 20 years). Used to be a nice, safe middle class area. Not so much anymore. My mom still lives there and I think in the last year we've just about convinced her it's time to get out.

    Why the rush to report as an "accidental" shooting when no investigation has been completed?

    Jealousy angle? You don't bring a gun into school just to "show" your girlfriend.





    Two students were involved in a shooting during dismissal time at a high school in Birmingham, Alabama, the city school district said.

    A 17-year-old girl was killed, and a 17-year-old boy was injured, the Associated Press reported.

    Authorities were working to determine whether the weapon was accidentally or intentionally discharged, according to the wire service. However, in an afternoon press conference, officials had said the shooting did not involve “someone from the outside (who) came into the school.”

    “Right now we have a lot of unanswered questions,” Birmingham Interim Police Chief Orlando Wilson told reporters. “This should not happen in schools.”

    Huffman High School was placed on a brief lockdown and police were called to the scene, Birmingham City Schools said in a statement.

    Students were released and police are investigating the circumstances of the shooting, the statement said.

    Check back for updates on this developing story.

    So a male student brought a gun into the school to show his girlfriend and stuffed it into his pants and it went off and now one is dead and the other is injured plus one person treated at the school. Hope I got that accident right. Didn't that gun know it was a gun free zone. What the heck is wrong with guns. Can't the read they signs.

    You clearly don't understand guns. Guns want to kill people. That's all they want to do. They sneak in where they aren't supposed to be, and given half a chance they'll start firing at whoever is near. Sometimes it takes two or three people to wrestle that sucker to the ground and punch its lights out. Guns are nasty. And people who like guns hate children. I'm not sure why that is, but that's how it is.

    TSA needs to be deployed, at every government skool,
    and the skool needs to go into lockdown,
    from the very first class, until the last so called student,
    actually leaves the skool campus.

    Also the local sheriff's office, should have a
    detention center, at each county high skool.

    Home skooling of course is the only way now,
    until it is outlawed at the federal level.

    Peoples, it aint going to get any better,
    only worse, much much worse,
    with high KIA counts.
    I expect to see a KIA and WIA report,
    on the teevee during the nightly evening news,
    from the government skools,
    just like it was during The Vietnam War.

    Please be safe everyone, and please arm up.

    Regards to all deplorables.

    This 17 y/o young woman lost her life. She was 30 days away from turning 18, had been accepted to college and wanted to study nursing. Many unanswered questions about Huffman High shooting, but remember the victim. She should be alive. My heart breaks for her family.

    Maybe. Apparently her name is Courtlin and the other kid (boy?) is a 10th grader. Two black guys posted these, so they must be in with the grapevine:

    *snips* -- What a crock.


    Students were subsequently released and authorities said they had determined that the shooting was not perpetrated by “someone from the outside” entering the school. Wilson declined to say who fired the gun or to identify what firearm was retrieved by authorities.



    Wilson did confirm metal detectors were in place and functioning in the school.



    Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey released a statement Wednesday evening that she was saddened by the student’s death.

    “I am praying for the family of this young lady who has tragically lost her life way too early. Every life is precious and, even though this was an accident, it reaffirms that there is no place for students to have firearms or other weapons on campus.”

    Another No Lackin Challenge gone wrong perhaps?

    News
    What Is The ' No Lackin' Challenge? Teen Shot After Viral Internet Dare Goes Wrong

    HoodVinesTV/YouTube
    Sydney Scott Jan, 29, 2018

    A teen has been left in critical condition after an internet challenge proved to be too dangerous.

    According to WMC-TV, a 17-year-old in Memphis was shot in the head while participating in the 'No Lackin' Challenge, a social media dare that sees participants pull guns on each other without pulling the trigger.

    Police say 21-year-old Sherman Lackland was sitting in a booth with friends at a local cafe playing the No Lackin Challenge when he accidentally shot his friend. Thomas Fitzpatrick, who was inside the restaurant at the time, said he heard a loud bang before seeing the man across from Lackland fall to the floor.

    Fitzpatrick says Lackland was visibly upset following the shooting, "He started grabbing him and telling him to get up and then he was kind of mad and was swinging stools and stuff."

    A quick search for the challenge on YouTube pulls up over 8,000 results, many of which consist of compilation videos of people participating in the challenge. "No lacking challenge gone wrong" also appears to be a common search.

    Lackland has been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon.

    A student bringing a gun into a school is not an accident it is an intentional act. There was a reason this student brought the gun into the school and brandished it. Quit playing games and state the truth. A young lady has been killed. At least give her the dignity of the truth.

    This is really sad. Prayers sent up for her family.

    I hope that I am wrong: wondering if the shooter is white. In any case, this shouldn't not have happened.

    Student killed in gun accident at Ala. high school ID'd; person of interest in custody

    March 8, 2018, 10:55 AM

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A student killed in an apparent gun accident at an Alabama high school Wednesday has been identified as 17-year-old Courtlin Lashawn Arrington, and a person of interest is in custody, reports CBS affiliate WIAT.

    Arrington was killed and another student was injured yesterday afternoon in the incident at Huffman High School in Birmingham. No details were immediately available about the arrest. Formal charges are pending as the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office reviews the case, WIAT reports.

    An autopsy will be performed today on Arrington, the Jefferson County Coroner tells the station.

    The school was closed Thursday as officials conducted a thorough safety sweep after metal detectors and other security measure failed to keep students from handling a gun in a classroom.

    Birmingham Interim Police Chief Orlando Wilson said investigators are reviewing surveillance video for clues and interviewing students and staff to figure out exactly what led to the shooting.

    "We consider it accidental until the investigation takes us elsewhere," Wilson said. "We have a lot of unanswered questions. There are so many unknowns at this time."

    The gun was recovered, but Wilson declined to say who fired it.

    "We're hoping if we have footage, that it will reveal it," he said. "If we have witnesses, we're hoping they will tell it."

    Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said the young woman killed was a senior who was about to turn 18 and had been accepted at college, with "aspirations and dreams to be a nurse."

    "We are not just talking about some person, we're talking about losing a part of our future. Our hearts are heavy," the mayor said.
