They said no link has been found between the shooter and the student who was killed. No motive was released.

Police said the shooting occurred in a gym detached from the main school building, with 14-year-old Emilio Hoffman killed in the boys’ locker room.

The weapons and ammunition was concealed in a guitar case and duffel bag when the shooter arrived at the campus.
