Police said there were nine people with injuries in the shooting. One of the victims killed in the shooting was identified as a health teacher at the school.
A gunman entered a south St. Louis high school on Monday with a “long gun” and multiple high-capacity magazines, shooting a teenage girl and a health teacher to death and injuring several others before police shot and killed him, authorities said.
Police identified the suspect late Monday as Orlando Harris, 19, a graduate last year of the school, Central Visual and Performing Arts High School, at Arsenal Street and South Kingshighway near Tower Grove Park.
One survivor heard the shooter say he was “tired of everybody” in the school.
Police said the damage could have been far worse. The shooter’s gun jammed at one point, one student said, giving kids time to escape. And police found more than a dozen 30-round magazines on him.
