Two teenagers were shot and injured at a high school in Great Mills, Maryland, on Tuesday morning, allegedly by a classmate who may have had a prior relationship with one of them, authorities said.

Authorities have said Jaelynn and the teen identified as the shooter, 17-year-old Austin Rollins, had previously had a relationship.

The 17-year-old shooter likely did not have legal authorization to possess the gun.

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, meanwhile, accused the Democrat-led legislature of failing to take action on "one of the most aggressive school safety plans in the country". "But prayers are not enough", Hogan said.

Authorities initially said Rollins shot the male victim after shooting the female victim but later said they needed to investigate further before determining if he shot both.

"In that split second, a decision has to be made", said Cameron, the county sheriff. That shooter is now dead.
