Recently in Florida, a brave school resource officer rushed into the scene to stop a school shooter before he did any real damage. We talk about how CNN, Fox News and all those other major media outlets praised this brave man for his valiant act, oh wait? that didn’t happen.

Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about which tourniquet would be best for applying to a small child. Something none of us want to think about, but is a real risk, It’s an unpleasant world we live in, and we have to be prepared.

From www.cbsnews.com:

A gunman who wounded one student at a Florida high school on the day of a national classroom walkout to protest gun violence has been identified as 19-year-old Sky Bouche, authorities said. Bouche was taken into custody by a school resource officer who rushed to the scene.

The shooting happened Friday morning at Forest High School in Ocala, which was put on lockdown, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office reported. The injured student, a 17-year-old boy, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury to his ankle.

Police initially said the suspect is also a student at the school, but later said he was not currently enrolled. The gunman carried a shotgun in a guitar case into the school by blending in with students, said Craig Ham, deputy superintendent of Ocala schools operations. Ham told reporters the shooter fired at the bottom of a classroom door, which was locked, and pellets struck the victim in the ankle.

The shooting happened Friday morning at Forest High School in Ocala. The suspect was first identified as a student, but later clarification shows that he was not a student at the school.

He brought a shotgun into the school concealed in a guitar case and blended in with students. At some point, he fired a shot at the bottom of a door, and some pellets from the shotgun blast struck a student in the ankle.
