According to witnesses, McQueen was able to keep the shooter’s arm pointing towards the ceiling as he continued to fire another five or six rounds. Apparently, in the chaos, another victim was hit. But by the time that a school resource officer arrived on the scene, McQueen had managed to subdue the attacker.
The suspect was disarmed and then restrained until police officers arrived on the scene. Meanwhile, the local community had descended into panic. With no clear idea about what had happened inside the building, parents began to descend upon the school en masse.
