Student who shot dead classmate in Washington high school was reportedly obsessed with school shootings

A student who opened fire in the hallway of his Washington State high school Wednesday, killing one classmate and wounding three others, had grown obsessed with school shootings, a friend said.

The suspect, identified by multiple students as Caleb Sharpe, was taken into custody by police and held in juvenile jail, the Spokesman-Review reported.

The shooter brought two weapons to Freeman High School in Rockford on Wednesday, but the first one he tried to fire jammed, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told reporters.
