    MIDLAND, Mich. -- A teenager shot his former girlfriend four times outside her high school, then killed himself, authorities said.

    Jessica Forsyth, 17, was taken to Hurley Medical Center in Flint, where she was in serious but stable condition, hospital spokeswoman Christie White said Wednesday afternoon.

    Midland Police Chief James St. Louis said the gunman died in the parking lot.

    The boy, a 17-year-old from Coleman, had gone to H.H. Dow High School on Wednesday morning to try to talk to Forsyth, but he was turned away by school officials, the police chief said. The boy then called her and asked her to meet him outside the building.

    After a conversation in the parking lot, the boy pulled a gun out of a backpack and shot her four times before turning the gun on himself, St. Louis said.

    The girl's mother, who had dropped her daughter off at the school, saw the shooting from her car and drove between the two to try to protect the girl, authorities said.

    The school, which is located about 100 miles northwest of Detroit, was locked down, officials said. Police were called around 11 a.m., and the lockdown ended around 12:30 p.m., a district official said.

    A public address announcement at the end of the school day informed students that a student was transported to Hurley Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The announcement also said no activities would be canceled, including a basketball game that was to be played Wednesday night.

    Cory Hearns, a junior at the school, was taking an economics exam when a public address announcement was made, informing everyone in the school that a lockdown had been ordered. Later in the class hour, another announcement was made in which the speaker said a student had been shot.

    "It's sad. The teacher tried to keep going on with the lesson, but kids kept getting calls on their cell phones," Hearns said. "It's kind of confusing. I don't know what to say about it. People didn't know what to think or what was going on."

    Justin Frost, a senior at nearby Midland High School, takes a class at Dow High and was on his way there Wednesday morning when he said he saw emergency responders tending to a person lying near a vehicle in the parking lot.

    "It looked like (the person) was underneath the vehicle. It looked like somebody had hit somebody (with a car). I got into school and found out somebody had been shot," the 18-year-old said.

    Dow High, which is named after the founder of chemical giant Dow Chemical Co., has 1,500 students.

    So she put her car between her daughter and the shooter instead of running the lowlife over? Brave but stupid.

    Maybe not the best idea, but at least she did something.
    Teenage boys are overly emotional and can't express themselves in a civil manner. Girls (especially ex-girlfriends) should avoid them whenever possible.

    What the...?!?!? Why on God's Grey Earth do children have cell phones turned on in class?

    I have a better question...

    Why the h3!! didn't she plow the little bugger down! Instead of trying to pull in-between them. He was shooting at her daughter and all she thought to do with her car was pull between them? Run his arse over!

    A 17yo should not have a handgun,This is ALREADY illegal. He brought a gun to school, this is ALREADY illegal. Why should there be more laws?

    There you go using logic, Mtbiker. You know that has no place in the grabber argument...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    This story is fiction - no one under 21 may possess a handgun by law!

    And schools are gun free zones. There is no way someone could bring a gun onto school grounds. /sarcasm

    Though, in Michigan at least, you only have to be 18 to possess or own a handgun. You just can't buy from a FFL or buy pistol ammo. Though they ask you if the ammo is for a handgun or rifle. Say handgun, you need your ID to make sure you are 21, say rifle, and they just check if your 18. Another stupid law. I remember hearing stories of young LEO's and cadets who needed to ask a older LEO to buy ammo for them, since they were under 21 and not allowed to purchase pistol ammuntion. Not sure how much truth is behind it though.

    I ran across a couple more articles on this incident. The shooter was evidently stopped taking his anti-depression meds. The story also mentions that he got the gun used in the shooting from his mother's gun safe.

    The girl who was shot evidently transfered schools to get away from the shooter. The girl who was shot is doing better. One of the shots was actually stopped by a steel plate that was inserted to fuse a broken collarbone when she was younger.

    The young lady who was injured will, I hope, have a speedy recovery with no long-term effects.
