Sadly, school shootings have become a regular component of news and current affairs. One tragic incident is followed shortly by another, with victims ranging from kindergartners to teenagers, while confused adults or teenagers are often the ones behind the trigger. Just recently, another terrible episode took place in Santa Clarita, California. Two students were killed and three ended up with injuries after a sixteen-year-old named Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow opened fire in their high school last Thursday.
Apparently, the gunman carried out the horrifying deed on his birthday. It was around 7:30 AM when he reportedly brought out a pistol from his backpack and proceeded to unload the entire magazine, firing at random. According to the authorities, it was a planned attack but the motive remains unclear. However, neighbors claim the teen was still mourning the death of his father while students say he was pretty antisocial.
He shot five classmates and himself. 15-year-old Gracie Anne Muehlberger and 14-year-old Dominic Blackwell died from the attack, while three of the injured teenagers are said to be recovering. A 14-year-old boy has already been discharged from the hospital, while a 15-year-old with a bullet lodged in her hip is recovering well.
One of the victims who survived, identified as Addison, is presently recovering from wounds on her abdomen and shoulder. The teen shares how her choir teacher, Kaitlin Holt, promptly administered first aid and saved her. In an interview with Good Morning America on Friday, Kaitlin Holt shared how she handled the situation. In the midst of the panic that seized all the students and teachers, the choir teacher managed to block the entrance to her classroom with a piano but she didn’t hesitate to let Addison in when students brought her over. Holt did her best to administer first aid and promptly called 911.
