Sheriff Cameron, speaking to News 4 on Tuesday after the Maryland high school shooting, pointed out that even as fast as the student resource officer (SRO) responded, two students were still shot.
The attack, which lasted less than a minute, ended after the school resource officer, Deputy 1st Class Sheriff Blaine Gaskill, ran inside the building and confronted Rollins, with both firing a single shot nearly simultaneously.
Rollins was pronounced dead at a hospital in Charles County at 10:41 a.m., the sheriff said.
It is still unclear if the officer's bullet killed Rollins or if the teen shot himself.
Great Mills High School was placed on lockdown following the shooting and students were later evacuated from the school.

Yet the 21-year age requirement, fingerprint requirement, fees, and licensing requirement, and sseven-day waiting period did not prevent 17-year-old Rollins from having a Glock 9mm pistol Tuesday morning. "You train to respond to this and you hope that you never ever have to", he said. After the incident, buses took students to Leonardtown High School, about eight miles away, where parents could pick them up. The cop was unhurt but the student was wounded and later died, the sheriff said.

"Schools must be the most hardened targets in this country", said one of the Tweets, quoting NRA President Wayne LaPierre.
Larry Hogan, the governor of Maryland, called Gaskill a "tough guy".
"They're all different", Hoyer said of the school shootings that have occurred this year at a rate of "approximately two a week", but he added, "there is a common element".
