Student: Suspect in Italy school shooting had a history of violent behavior
from The Dallas Morning News
From Jan. 26
: A 15-year-old girl was hospitalized Monday morning after a shooting at a school in the Ellis County town of Italy. A 16-year-old boy was taken into custody, the Ellis County Sheriff's Office said. The suspect was a student who left the Italy High building immediately after firing several shots with a .380-caliber handgun in the cafeteria, officials say. Usually 45 to 55 students are in the cafeteria at that time.
Cassie Shook, a 17-year-old junior at the school, told The Associated Press that she was driving up to the building when she saw "the doors fly open and everyone screaming and running out of the building." She said she was angry when she learned who the suspect was because she'd complained about the boy at least twice to school officials, including to a vice principal.
