A 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl were injured before the shooter was brought down. The unnamed male student is in good condition at a local hospital while the female student’s condition remains unclear.“This is what we train for. This is what we prepare for and this is what we pray we never have to do,” Cameron said. “And on this day we realized our worst nightmare, that our greatest assets — our children — were attacked in a bastion of safety and security, one of our schools.”
