Teen Shooter Wounded by Police, Deputy Says
The 16-year-old gunman in the Red Lake High School shootings was wounded by tribal police officers before retreating to a classroom and taking his own life, according to an account by Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy James Goss.
Jeff Weise killed himself with a shotgun after being hit in the hip and leg, according to the e-mailed account obtained by the Associated Press. The deputy also wrote that “the entire school” was “covered with blood,” and said there were bullet holes “everywhere.” An FBI spokesman had no comment on the deputy’s account.
Weise killed nine people in the March 21 rampage, including seven at the high school, before killing himself.
