Ohio teen who killed himself at school planned to kill other

JACKSON TWP., Summit County — A 13-year-old boy who shot and killed himself in school last month intended to carry out an eight-step school shooting.

The teen shot himself in the head just before 8 a.m. Feb. 20 with a semiautomatic rifle at Jackson Middle School in northern Ohio. The teen’s name is not being released by this news outlet.

Jackson Twp. Police Chief Mark Brink said the student did not use social media often, but they found notes on his phone that showed his “intentions to harm others” through detailed plans in the memo section of his phone.

Authorities said the student had 80 rounds of ammunition on him but do not know why he changed his mind and shot himself.


Among his ramblings about wanting to kill as many people as possible, he allegedly wrote this:

Feb. 18: “I’m going to die doing it, I hate those people, when they interview my parents and ask how they didn’t see the signs they should know it’s not them it’s me and it’s because of how I see the world...I’d hurt and destroy something bigger but my schools an easy target...”


This is the 2nd teenager in the US in the last 6 months to express picking a particular school for a mass shooting for this reason. :(

This school is about 20min from me & according to local news this morning, he came out of the bathroom brandishing the weapon & nobody noticed it.
Then he returned back into the restroom & that's when someone noticed it, that person went to go get help & this is when he shot himself.
I have been past this school many times throughout the day during school hours & there is always a empty Sheriffs cruiser in the parking lot, assuming there is a armed patrol inside the school during hours.

Was no one around at the time to see him? How do you brandish a rifle in a school and nobody notice? :roll: (I think I know the answer, just being sarcastic)

So does anyone have any opinions on what he was allegedly referring to when he said the school was an "easy target"? Could suicide have been his original intent or goal, and the rest, the extra ammo and the ramblings, was just for show or to confuse people about his real intent?

Note he wanted to be known (famous) like the Columbine shooters, and he picked his school because it was an easy (soft) target where no defense or guns were allowed.

I am glad he did not hurt anyone besides himself, and very sad that one so young is gone forever. But can someone please explain how he got a rifle past the "no guns" signage?

Jackson is my alma mater. I have a niece and nephew in that school. A friend of mine knows the ER nurse that was treating the boy. According to her the shot angle does not indicate suicide but rather an accidental shooting. He apparently lived a couple of days before they pulled the plug as he was brain dead. This is all third hand info so take it for what it’s worth. Sad case.
