A school resource officer is being credited for taking down a school shooter at a high school in Maryland. Police say that around 8:15 am the unidentified student opened fire at Great Mills High School injuring at least two people before he was wounded and taken into custody. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. 

Sheriff Tim Cameron said the student shot a female student in the hallway. A male student was also struck by a bullet. A school resource officer exchanged gunfire with the shooter and managed to hit him and take him into custody. The officer was not wounded. 

The two victims were taken to the hospital with critical injuries. 

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan tweeted, "We are closely monitoring the situation at Great Mills High School. @MDSP is in touch with local law enforcement and ready to provide support. Our prayers are with students, school personnel, and first responders."

CNN is reporting that the Sheriff's office and the FBI are on the scene. 

The shooting comes four days before the national March For Our Lives, on Saturday March 24th in Washington DC.  Students, teachers, parents and allies around the nation are preparing to rally for gun control and school safety measures in the wake of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Valentine's Day that left 17 dead
