School Shooting in Alpine

Take a look at the national news sites.  There was an active shooter situation at Alpine High School this A.M.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Terrible tragedy for the parents of the girl who killed herself. 

Apparently, she was loading her gun, a semi automatic pistol, and several cartridges in the bathroom near the band hall.  Another student happened to walk in on her. The girl turned the gun on her and began firing, four rounds. One of them grazed her back as she ran, screaming from the bathroom.  The girl then turned the gun on herself while still in the bathroom.  It ended before it even got started.  Based on the amount of ammo she had, she was likely getting ready to do some damage before the other girl walked in on her.

Terrible tragedy. Also seen reports of bomb threats at Sul Ross and the alpine hospital. Seems the craziness is everywhere.
