During a press conference on Thursday afternoon, authorities said a 14-year-old female freshman student, whose name hasn't been released, turned the gun on herself after shooting another student, possibly a 16-year-old student, in the lower extremities.

Condolences to the families of all victims of gun violence, self-inflicted or not.
