Authorities in Maryland are now saying that Deputy Blaine Gaskill, the school resource officer at Great Mills High School, did not fire the shot that killed Austin Rollins.  According to the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office. Rollins shot himself in the head at the same time Deputy Gaskill fired his gun.  Gaskill's shot hit Rollins in the hand.

Rollins has since died from the injuries, after allegedly shooting two other students, one of whom also later died from her injuries. The other student, Desmond Barnes, survived being shot in the leg.
