Unknown Motives, and a Surprising Hero [DETAILS]

The complete motives which led the school shooter in Oxford, Michigan to carry out his attack are not yet known. Witnesses have reported, however, that as everyone else in the building was fleeing from the deranged gunman, one heroic student was running in the other direction. 16-year-old Tate Myer, a football player at Oxford High School died while attempting to disarm the shooter according to his classmates and coach.

Student died trying to stop gunman

The killer ultimately took the lives of four students and injured seven others. There could have been more deaths if one brave student had not leapt into action.

Tate Myers ultimately was unable to disarm the 15-year-old gunman but he was able to buy time for most of  his fellow students to escape from the gunfire which claimed his own life.

Police have not yet confirmed that Myers died trying to sacrifice himself for his classmates but other students at Oxford High School seem to have no doubt about his heroism.

An online petition calling for the school’s stadium to be renamed for the star running back has already gained more than 200,000 signatures.

Myer’s father was searching amongst survivors for his son with JR Laefner, a family friend who announces football games at Oxford when the two men came to a sudden realization.

Laefner reported that Buck Myers turned to him when they were unable to locate his son and said “You know who would go take that guy out, right?”

Motives still vague

Tate Myre was considered by those who knew him as the type of person who would rush into danger to protect others but the rest of the students killed at Oxford never asked to be placed in the situation they found themselves in.

Hana St. Juliana, 14, Madisyn Baldwin, 17, and Justin Shilling, 17, were all killed by a shooter who for now seems to have had no readily apparent motives other than a generalized hatred and desire to kill.

15-year-old Ethan Crumbley has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder and his parents face charges for giving him access to the weapon he used.

Several of the students who survived being shot still  suffered severe injuries in the shooting. One teacher was shot but has since been discharged from the hospital.

Some students reportedly grabbed scissors, calculators, and anything else on hand for self-defense as they hid from the shooting inside classrooms.

The attack was the deadliest shooting at a K-12 campus since 2018 but it possibly could have been much worse had one student not chosen to risk his own life to protect others.
