Australia: Teen jailed for what is thought to be nation's first school shooting

A teenager has been jailed for carrying out what is thought to be Australia's first school shooting.

The 15-year-old from Perth fired three shots with two rifles at the Atlantis Beach Baptist College last May.

Staff and students were left cowering in cupboards and under desks before police eventually arrested him.

The judge who sentenced him to three years in juvenile detention said "good luck" had "prevented a tragic outcome".

No one was hurt in the shooting, which is believed to be the first of its kind in Australia.

Australians should pass a law that makes it illegal to attempt murder.

Definitely a school shooting.Two school buildings were injured. 

And the shooter changed his mind and called the police on himself. 

Three shots fired from a carpark doesn't really sound like a school shooting. But whatever. 

His father now needs to be investigated. I wonder if they were in a rural area. That would explain why he had a gun if so.

The school didn't get shot. 

At The Atlantis Beach Baptist College, two buildings weren't so lucky. 

I wondered the same.
