Great Mills High School is about 70 miles southeast of Washington in Great Mills, Maryland, and has about 1,600 students.
The school resource officer who engaged with an active shooter at a Maryland high school on Tuesday has been recognized for his "exemplary judgment" before.
He praised the responsiveness of school resource officer Deputy Brent Gaskill, who confronted 17-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins who police say was the school shooter. "We can not allow the cries of survivors and students to be drowned out by the gun lobby", he said. This is what we prepare for, and this is what we pray we never have to do.
"Gaskill fired at the shooter nearly simultaneously as the shooter fired", Cameron said.
"He responded exactly as we train our personnel to respond", Cameron said.

According to CNN's research, there have been 16 confirmed school shootings this year in the United States prior to today. A female student was in critical condition and a "young man" was in critical but stable condition. A 14-year-old boy also struck by gunfire was listed in good condition at a hospital.
In Maryland, it wasn't immediately clear whether the shooter took his own life or was killed by the officer's bullet, St. Mary's County Sheriff Tim Cameron said, though the officer was credited with preventing any more loss of life.
The shooter was wounded after exchanging fire with a school resource officer on campus. An investigation will determine whether Rollins was fatally wounded by Gaskill. "He fired a round at the shooter; simultaneously the shooter fired a round as well".
"That's a potential", Cameron replied, declining to speculate on a possible motive for the shooting.
"I'm not aware of anything, but again we're gonna go back and comb through that as well as anybody involved (and) their social media posts", Cameron said in response to questions about the report.

A sheriff's spokeswoman says three people have been injured in a shooting at a high school in southern Maryland, including the shooter. But based on the evidence we do have, there's enough to suggest that putting more guns in schools could actually make gun violence worse. "About an hour or two later they came - more police came - and told us they would search us and search our bags and stuff".
"This is a tough guy who apparently closed in very quickly and took the right kind of action", Hogan said of Gaskill. "It's tragic", the governor said of the shooting. At a news conference, he said, "Our hearts are broken".
"This [Great Mills High School] armed school resource officer, you're not hearing anyone in #MSM talk about it because it disrupts their narrative", NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch saidin one of several tweets Tuesday.
