Alarmed at the sound of gunfire in the halls of his Pearl,
Mississippi, high school, Assistant Principal Joel Myrick ran to his
car to retrieve a pistol. The shooter was an armed student who
marched through the school firing on his fellow classmates and
teachers. The assailant's efforts to escape the scene ground to a
halt when another student used his own vehicle to force the
suspect's white car into the grass, where it spun to a stop. Myrick
used the delay to catch up to the armed student and hold him for
police. Pearl schools Superintendent Bill Dodson said of Myrick,
"We think he's a hero for keeping more lives from being lost. The
young man with the gun still had rounds in the rifle and could have
injured other people."
