tonight. neighbors and fellow students who knew him call it an expected saying that he was quiet and smart as we mentioned several students are in critical condition tonight they want to turn now to chris wolfe he joins us live from the let's see in front of the hospital where. >>anxious families are certainly hoping and praying for the best chris thanks for being with us. we mentioned a little bit about the gunman, but we've heard that there's an instagram either poster profile you just are wondering when you have situations like this that are so tragic. what can cause a kid to snap what we know about. >>absolutely well according to a neighbor. this young man he is asian he lost his father a year ago. now has been living with it with just his mother and the neighbor says that they took it very hard. they took the father's death a year ago, very deeply affected them very deeply and so that is one issue that we know the suspect has been dealing with. but a
lot of his classmates at saugus high school say it was very uneepected that he was introverted very quiet kept to himself. we know he was a member of the cross country team he apparently was a smart student was planning to go to college and the people i spoke with today on campus say they never would have expected anything like this from him. he never had threatened anyone or made any overt threats against the school or any other classmates. authorities say that this all shortly after 7 30 this morning that the individual the 16 year-old boy whose birthday is today was dressed in black walked into the quad area on campus an open courtyard in the center of the property pulled out a 45 caliber semiautomatic handgun from a backpack and then unleashed a spray of bullets on 5 classmates killing 2 of them before turning the gun on himself. he now remains in critical condition here at this hospital behind me. this is henry mayo hospital in
valencia people who were close to him don't know why this may have happened we do know that fbi agents cyber experts are joining local authorities in the investigation. performing what they call a social media scrub looking through all of his social media postings looking through all of his electronics his computer his cell phone trying to find some evidence some kind of motivation. some kind of intention behind all of this. authorities say the entire attack took only 16 seconds this morning. they believe the shootings were random that these students were not specifically targeted well beforehand that they were there simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when he chose to start firing his weapon. you did mention that instagram post apparently authorities have found a social media posting an instagram post that they're linking to the suspect says something along the lines of have fun tomorrow at saugus high school. they say interesting leave that post has been updated and changed over the course of today after
the shooting they certainly know the shooter couldn't have done that he's incapacitated so they're wondering now if a hacker got into that account and was was messing with it or whether some kind of accomplice got in there and started updating it and changing around so they're looking at all of this very closely they've been scouring the house looking for evidence we know sadly past history shows us that people who commit these types of atrocities tend to verbalize their motivation. their intentions. we've seen it happen in video recordings we've seen it happen with the written word in manifestos so far from what we know fbi agents and others say they have not found any such writings or verbal is a shuns to let them know what the motivation behind this may have been so that remains a mystery but that's the latest from valencia back to you yeah, chris just warmer question about uh like i heard something to the effect that the kids had actually have. >>active shooter training. you
know just prior to this so and because that law enforcement was so quick on the scene as well that mitigate some of the injuries and the harm that that might have been done otherwise. >>certainly it was great that law enforcement was there within minutes of the shooting and i actually asked some of the kids i said you just had the one of these drills they've had several through the years they said they never expected it happened on their campus. they hoped and prayed would never happen, but it did. i said so when it was unfolding did your training kick in or was it more panic. they said it was a combination some of them who are able to run to safety did they said we face that fight or flight kind of a mentality and we chose to flee we're and the heck out of there we ran into the surrounding neighborhoods. we grabbed anyone we could carried some people in some cases tried to help people escape, hoping and praying for the best with the people we new were still on campus in classrooms. those people who stayed behind in the
classrooms when all this was unfolding said they barricaded themselves inside the classrooms that is where their training kicked in they immediately barricaded the doors they started piling that furniture up in front of the classroom doors chairs and desks and filing cabinets and so forth and then they were hunkering down staying clear of the windows one mother reported that her daughter said one of the girls who was shot. actually ran into her classroom. obviously that quad wasn't far from that classroom, one of the victims was able to run into that classroom. she was seriously injured she was bleeding. the girl said that everyone spring in action tried to help or tried to compressed the wound and hold the wound down and and try to stop the bleeding with pressure but you can only imagine that horrific scene and how traumatized these people this community is going to be for the foreseeable future. far too many of these tragedies. thank you. chris
