Had it not been for the heroic efforts of several students in Colorado, the school shooting that took place at STEM School Highlands Ranch might have been even worse.
Brendan Bialy and several other students saw the shooter pull the gun out of a guitar case, tried to tackle the gunman and managed to disarm the person. In the process, one of the students was shot in the chest.
According to the boy’s father, Brendan is planning to join the Marines once he graduates.
The suspects in the shooting are in custody and police have said that one is female. One student died and eight others were injured. No names have been released.
