Victims and suspect identified in Freeman shooting

In this school shooting there were plenty of warning signs about the shooter, according to a report by KXLY-TV in Spokane.

After he was killed, air force veteran turned high school custodian Joe Bowen, 42, convinced the gunman to stop shooting for long enough for him to be brought down by police.

While details were still sparse, Knezovich said it appears the gunman was then subdued by the "very courageous actions" of a school district employee. They were in stable condition and surrounded by family, she said.

On Sept. 26, the school staff will work with local law enforcement and emergency responders to engage in an open dialogue with students about dealing with violent threats.

"We consider that our front radar", said Sterk, the former Spokane County sheriff.

Students said the shooter was armed with a pistol and rifle and had carried a duffel bag to school.

Michael Harper, 15, a sophomore at the school, told The Associated Press that the suspect was a classmate who had always been obsessed with past school shootings.

The Associated Press doesn't normally name adolescent suspects however is doing as such on account of the seriousness of the allegations and on the grounds that Sharpe's name was discharged in openly accessible archives and was broadly utilized as a part of nearby media.

The sheriff said the shooter fired several more rounds, hitting other students, before a school custodian ordered him to surrender.

An "active shooter" was arrested last Friday at a school in Columbus, Ohio, although no one was injured in that incident.

After the shooting, a two-lane road into the community of about 500 people near the Idaho border was clogged with vehicles.

"I ask you please to join me in offering our assistance, care, and support to our neighbors in Freeman", said Ken Russell in a Facebook post. "I've never heard him like that", Moser told The Spokesman-Review newspaper.

Stephanie Lutje told AP she was relieved to hear her son was safe after his school near Freeman High was put on lockdown. Investigators have said little about his motives so far.

Riverside School District noted that new security protocol is in place at all schools.

It was then that a fearless custodian put his life on the line, attempting to convince Sharpe to stop the madness, the Associated Press reports.

A call to the school was not immediately returned.

He called the shooting "heartbreaking" and said all residents of the state are thinking of the victims.
