There are still several unknowns surrounding the shooting that took place Tuesday inside Reynolds High School in Troutland, Oregon. But police have determined that the teenage gunman, Jared Padgett, obtained his arsenal—“an AR-15-style rifle and also was carrying a semiautomatic handgun that he did not use, as well as a large knife and nine loaded ammunition magazines with a capacity for several hundred rounds”—from home. Authorities have not yet indicated whether the firearms were legally owned or registered by family members.
The shooting resulted in the deaths of Emilio Hoffman, a fellow freshman, and Padgett himself, who turned his gun on himself after a confrontation with police. A gym teacher, Todd Rispler, was grazed by gunfire, but successfully made it to the school office to warn administrators and initiate a lockdown.
