A gunman who shot and injured two teenage students at a high school in the U.S. state of Maryland was shot dead after a gunfight with a security guard.

"This is what we prepare for and this is what we pray we will never have to do", the sheriff said Tuesday.

"This Great Mills High School armed school resource officer, you're not hearing anyone in mainstream media talk about it because it disrupts their narrative", Loesch said.

The sheriff initially told reporters Rollins shot both victims with a handgun, but then said in response to questions that investigators were still uncertain who fired the shot that hit the 14-year-old.

"When the shooting took place, our school resource officer, who was stationed inside the school, was alerted to the event and the shots being fired".

While the 14 year-old victim's condition has been described as "good" by local news and authorities, Willey is now in critical condition with life-threatening injuries at UM Prince George's Hospital Center and the shooter has been declared deceased.

The shooting was reported around 8 a.m. Politicians were quick to respond to yet another school shooting, calling for action against gun violence. Julie Yingling says there have been no fatalities in the Tuesday morning shooting at Great Mills High School.

"We've got to take action", Hogan said.

The shooting also led to a 14 year old boy being shot after a bullet ricochet in the hallway.

Emma Gonzalez, a senior at Stoneman Douglas High School who survived last month's shootings, wrote on Twitter, "We are here for you, students of Great Mills, together we can stop this from ever happening again". Deputy Gaskill is credited with containing Tuesday's high school shooting within a minute of Rollins' initial gunshot being fired.

"I'm still a little shaken up", he said.

"Who knows why I didn't go into work", said Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad Deputy Chief, Michael Cahall.

The congressman earlier renewed his call for more stringent background checks on would-be gun purchasers, and the governor spoke of current school-safety legislation in Annapolis, along with the need for "taking guns out of the hands of the mentally ill". "We are working as we speak to determine if that was and, if so, the extent of that and if it was part of the motive for this shooting".

Jaelynn is one of nine siblings, according to a statement from the family, and a member of the swim team. "We did sleepovers all the time", he said.

"What we had this morning is truly our worst fear", said Dr. James Scott Smith, superintendent of St. Mary's County Public School System.

Matthew Lancaster said it was tough at times to handle the thoughts and stress of the situation. He said it's now for Congress to take action.

Students endured a lengthy lockdown, cowering inside classrooms and a locker room while officers worked to make sure there were no more threats on campus.

The survivors are organizing a national demonstration for gun control laws on March 24 called March for Our Lives.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said their agents are on the scene assisting the sheriff's department.
