Tyler Durden with Zerohedge reports:
The critically wounded teacher has been identified as 25-year old Abby Zwerner of Williamsburg, Virginia, according to WKTR. Zwerner, a graduate of James Madison University, was transported to Riverside Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
“She is a great teacher who works hard. My son loves her very much, and we’re all very sad about what happened,” said Sebastian Gonzalez-Hernandez, a parent of a Zwerner student, in a report by the New York Post.
DailyMail also reports that, according to a student’s grandmother, a student who may or may not have been the shooter brought “shiny gold bullets” to school last week and said he was thinking about bringing a gun.
