Philadelphia School Shooting suspect held

Philadelphia police on Saturday arrested the absconding student who is suspected to have involved in a school shooting incident that left two students injured on Friday.

17-year-old Raisheem Rochwell was sent behind bars on Saturday morning. He is charged as an adult for his alleged involvement in the shooting incident.

A girl and her boyfriend, both 15, got wounded when their fellow mate opened fire at them in the campus of Delaware Valley Charter High School.

This incident comes just days after a 12-year-old student opened fire at a Roswell, N.M. school, injuring two fellow students.

The initial reports suggest the shooting was accidental and happened while the three students were playing with the gun.

Both the victims were rushed to the nearby Einstein Medical Center after the unfortunate incident took place.

The girl, who was shot through the arm, was released from the hospital later on Friday after treatment. The boy, however, remains at the hospital. He was struck by the same bullet which lodged in his shoulder, police said.

After hearing the shocking news, the parent of one of the victim said, “A school is supposed to be a safe environment. Are you kidding me? Two kids just got shot. How was a child, or whoever, [able to] bring a gun up in the school?”

According to USA Today report, the school was closed and its 600 students were searched individually and released.

Shooting incidents especially those at schools are becoming a common event across the United States. This calls for a stringent gun law in the country.

    I think I understand what happened; however, the atrocious writing made that difficult. Incidentally, anyone who is shocked at a school shooting these days must live in a cave.

    This is perhaps the worst-written report I have read. You really need to edit your work; there are at least three subject-verb agreement errors in this report, in addition to clumsy sentence structure (antecedent issues.) Amateurish work.

  3. What made it happen? Too many guns in too many stupid peoples homes.

    • Harry Faulkner says:

      I think all these schools need to tighten up security perimeters. If these kids can’t march into the school armed, none of this would happen. Fence the perimeter. Make all students enter through a single portal where an official can search them if he sees anything unusual. This would certainly stop kids from bringing rifles (like this one) and shotguns (like the others in the past few months.)

      • The problem is not a lack of security. schools never had security before. And why should kids have to go to school under armed security ? the problem is a culture that promotes violence and makes easy access to guns.

        • Harry Faulkner says:

          The culture of violence is a problem, yeah. But we live in a society ruled by the law of the Constitution and it guarantees freedom of speech (even if it’s violent) and freedom to own guns (even if that is a misguided rule that puts our society in danger of imploding) We are never going to see the 2nd Amendment repealed, and I am pretty sure no one wants the 1st Amendment to be changed. So the only thing left to do is to defend ourselves against these crazy people with guns.
