Jared Michael Padgett ID’d as Oregon School Shooting Suspect

BREAKING:  Troutdale police identify Reynolds High School shooting suspect as 15-year old Jared Michael Padgett. Freshman Emilio Hoffman was shot and killed during the shooting. Padgett had an AR-15 semi-automatic handgun, with nine loaded magazines holding several hundred rounds.

Padgett, a Mormon, also wore a camouflage helmet and ammunition vest when he started shooting just after 8 a.m. The teen, who is from a military family, was angry at his classmates over his presentation about Hitler a week earlier.

Jared Michael Padgett committed suicide in a bathroom after encountering police officers in the school hall. Here’s more on Padgett from the Troutdale Police Department press release:
He was a freshman at Reynolds High School. He arrived at school yesterday morning on the school bus, carrying a guitar case and a duffel bag. He entered the boys’ locker room in the building that housed the gymnasium. He spent a period of time in the locker room, and during that time murdered a fellow student. 

We have not established any link between the student and the shooter. 

Teacher Todd Rispler encountered the shooter in the locker room. As he was fleeing, Mr. Rispler was shot once, suffering a grazing wound to his hip. Mr. Rispler made his way to the office, where he was able to notify the administration, which then immediately initiated the lockdown. 

As the shooter was moving through the main hallway, he encountered officers who were starting to enter from two separate doorways. At that time, he moved into a small restroom. We know there was an exchange of gunfire between one of the first responding officers and the shooter. Based on the autopsy this morning, we do know that the shooter died of a self-inflected gunshot wound. 

The shooter used an AR-15 type rifle in the attack and carried, but did not use, a semi-automatic handgun. Investigators also recovered nine loaded magazines with the capability of holding several hundred rounds. 


The shooter also had a large knife. He was wearing a non-ballistic vest used for carrying ammunition and other items. He also was wearing a multi-sport helmet with a camouflage design.

Justin Bernard Singleton Charged in Murder of Brandon Robinson in SC State Shooting

Justin Bernard Singleton was charged with murder in the shooting death of Brandon Robinson at South Carolina State University. Singleton was arrested early Saturday morning in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Orangeburg, SC.

Police were initially looking for four suspects in connection with murder of Brandon Robinson, who was a redshirt football player. It is not clear if police are still looking for three other suspects. Thom Berry, public information officer with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, said they believe “we have the individual who fired the shot.”

The Times and Democrat reports police said they haven’t found a motive for Brandon Robinson’s murder: 

“South Carolina State also was the site of a fatal shooting in 2011, when police said three men met on campus for a drug deal. A student, 22-year-old Jonathan Bailey, was killed.”

“Friday’s fatal shooting happened three days after authorities said a Purdue University student shot and stabbed a fellow student to death in a classroom.”

“South Carolina State University is a historically black university with about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.”

He was armed with a shotgun, a machete and had Molotov cocktails in his backpack. He was upset that the school’s debate team instructor had dropped him from the team.

ABC News reports the student used a shotgun and critically wounded a 13-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy, who were “simply sitting in their gym waiting to go to class,” New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez said.
