Student Kyle Nucum, 13, witnessed the school shooting rampage that injured two 12-year-old students, killed a beloved teacher, and left the shooter dead. The young shooter – armed with his parents' gun – took his own life, silencing any way of understanding what he was thinking.
Nucum said he did not personally know the shooter, but said his behavior on the day of the shooting seemed to show that he was bullied.
"He was yelling stuff like 'Why are you laughing at me?' 'Why are you doing this to me?'" said Nucum.
The 13-year-old student said he was talking with a friend when the shooting started.
"For a second I thought it was a firecracker at first, and then I turned around, and see a teacher approach the gunman, and then the gunman is pointing the gun towards the teacher, and he fires a shot at the teacher, and then everybody started screaming and running," said Nucum.
Nucum and his friend were running across a soccer field when they heard four or five more shots ring out.
"I turned around and saw the teacher laying down, and the gunman shooting at the other students, and we ran into this lady that let us into her house and from there, we called our parents," said Nucum.
The young student said he did not know the slain teacher very well, but on the few occasions he talked with him, "He was always a positive guy. He would always try and make other people's days, you know, like more better. That was the kind of guy he was."
