Second Suspect Arrested in School Shooting

Allegedly sold the gun to the shooter.

6ABC reports: “Police have made a second arrest in connection with a shooting inside a Philadelphia school on Friday. Investigators say Donte Walker, 18, of the 5600 block of North Sydenham Street, appears to have sold the gun that was used inside the gymnasium of the Delaware Valley Charter School.”

Investigators say Raisheem Rochwell, the 17 year old accused of pulling the trigger, feared he was about to be the victim of an assault, and bought the gun for … self-defense purposes. So for all those people who say we should let more people on school campuses carry guns in order to protect against the rifle- bearing nuts who would kill our children: Well-done.
