15-year-old Caleb Sharpe is charged with opening fire on his fellow classmates at Freeman High School in Rockford, Wash. — and the gun-obsessed teen posted rehearsals for his deadly rampage in plain sight!
Horrified students ran for cover as Sharpe walked into his high school with a rifle and handgun before opening fire. Heroic teen Sam Strahan rushed up to confront his friend, only to be brutally slain in a hallway.
Sharpe, who had shaved his head in preparation for the attack, then took aim at three girls who were all left wounded. A member of the high school's staff was then able to put an end to Sharpe's would-be massacre. But, much like Columbine High School killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold,
Sharpe left behind warning signs of his impending madness!
As seen here, Sharpe (in glasses) had spent his summer filming mock shootouts with a friend — as he emulated action heroes and practiced dashing around while unloading his toy guns. He later added sound effects for a more satisfying video experience, before moving on to real weapons!
Students said that Sharpe — described by one classmate as “nice, and funny weird” with “many friends” — had recently become obsessed with documentaries on school shootings, and was also a dedicated fan of the violent TV drama "Breaking Bad." He was also a fan of the controversial teen suicide drama "13 Reasons Why."
In a troubling twist, students said that Sharpe had also started the school year with a note warning friends he was planning “something stupid” — and some claimed that school counselors had been notified about Sharpe's warning.
