Central Visual & Performing Arts High School – St. Louis, Missouri
19-year-old Orlando Harris killed two people, a 15-year-old student, and a teacher, and wounded others in a school shooting on October 24th. Harris’s first attempt at purchasing a gun was denied though he was still able to go around the system and buy a gun from a private individual. And while police were able to arrive at the school within minutes of the shooting being reported Harris continued to shoot, kill and wound several people at the school. The campus is most likely going to be closed to students for weeks or maybe months following the events, while this sort of thing is becoming common in our country. This shooting was marked as the 67th shooting to happen on American school grounds this year.
