Jonathan Freese, a student at Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, called in to CNN on Tuesday while he was still in lockdown amid an early morning shooting.
Talking with CNN host John Berman, Freese described the situation he’d experienced as he sat in his math class at the high school.
“At first I heard that a couple of people got shot at about 7 [a.m.] or so,” he said. “One person is supposedly dead, what I’ve heard.”
Freese, who said he was far away from the shooting when it occurred, said police were now going through the building room by room to ensure students’ safety and he said that “soon we are going to be escorted out of the school.”
Freese said that he has done active shooter drills at the schools “a couple of times,” though he still never expected anything like this to happen. He also praised police for their fast response to the shooting.

Donald Trump Jr torn to shreds for suggesting his dad has been treated worse than slaves and Native Americans
Donald Trump Jr. thinks his father has been treated worse than any human in American history -- including slaves, Native Americans and presidents who have been assassinated while in office.
After President Donald Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been," Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to defend his father and simply said that "he's right."
He’s right. https://t.co/ZRlenHkXrq
The Vatican’s latest official document is an insult to LGBTQ people — and to history
During the fourth-century, Sergius and Bacchus, two inseparable Syrian soldiers in the Roman emperor Galerius’ army, were outed as secret Christians when they refused to pay homage to the god Jupiter. The incensed emperor ordered them beaten, chained, and then, as their fourth-century hagiographer explained, paraded through the barracks with “all other military garb removed… and women’s clothing placed on them.” Both men were sent to trial; Bacchus refused to abjure his faith in Christ and was beaten to death by his fellow Roman soldiers as punishment. The night before Sergius was to be similarly asked to recant his Christianity, the spirit of Bacchus appeared before his partner. With his “face as radiant as an angel’s, wearing an officer’s uniform,” Bacchus asked, “Why do you grieve and mourn, brother? If I have been taken from you in body, I am still with you in the bond of union.”
Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’
President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.
The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."
Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
