Sheriff Cameron told reporters at an afternoon press briefing that Deputy Gaskill, a six-year veteran of the force who is in his first year at Great Mills High School, was able to contain the situation within 1 minute of the time the initial shot was sacked.
Minutes later, some of the school's almost 1,600 students were being escorted by an adult behind the main building as first responders continued securing the area.
