Student Shoots Self After Missing Teacher

A student at a middle school in Louisiana's Lafourche Parish has been hospitalized after trying to shoot a teacher and then shooting himself in the head, the sheriff said.

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre told New Orleans TV station WDSU that the 15-year-old student brought a gun to the school and fired one shot into a classroom. No one was hurt, Webre said. Sgt. Lesley Peters said the student had tried to shoot a teacher.

The student then ran into the boys' bathroom shot himself in the head, Webre said.

The school has been locked down, and all other students are accounted for, Webre said.

"The rest of the student body is being systematically evacuated from the school to a staging area," Webre said.

Webre said he believes the student is 15 years old. His name has not been released.

Larose is about 45 miles southwest of New Orleans.

School shooting done right, even if it was not planned that way. Take yourself out by all means, leave everyone else alone.

Once again the gun free school zone concept is proved to be a lie.

QUICK!

Ban cannons! Ban assault rifles! Ban regular rifles! Ban all automatic weapons of any kind! Ban handguns! Ban pistols! Ban slingshots and peashooters!! Ban BAN!

Only then will our little kiddlies be safe and sound!

"What? Somebody flew a twin engine aircraft into an elementary school??"

"What?" "Some highschool kid with a home made bomb rounded up all the teachers in the school into the gym, then set the bomb off, while all the little kiddlies sat quietly in their classrooms repeating the obammer mantra, "Yes, we can. Yes, we can."??

I guess his Momma wouldn’t agree with you.

This is a small town, very small. There is some heartbreak around there is my guess.

About half as much heartbreak as there could be, is my guess.”

Apparently, this 15 year old kid has a lot of problems. It is very sad when one so young is this screwed up.

The good news is that he wasn't able to do much damage.

Well said basil.

Hard to imagine why someone so young would feel shooting a teacher is the only, or best, option.

Evidently he was as poor a shooter as he was a student ...

suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Sad. But thank God that he didn’t hurt the teacher or other students.

Absolutely right. I have no doubt had he been successful in shooting the teacher, he would have shot himself anyway.

You are right about that. But still, doesn’t make his shooting himself a good thing. Maybe a less bad thing. But nothing to celebrate.

Playstation 2, Playstation3, XBox360, XBox, Wii, Nintendo DS, PSP... It's really not that hard to imagine.

Had to read the story

From the headline you would think — the “poor darling” came to school, noticed his favorite teacher was gone and in a fit of depressive panic, shot himslef.

I thought students weren’t allowed to carry on-campus.

Tonto - Spanish for ‘idiot’ (really mi amigo). When the series went international, Tonto had a name change.

Who knew?

All these mass shooters should just shoot themselves first, then if that works out well for them, they can shoot everyone else. Same with the murder suicide folks.
