The incident took place at Tocqueville school during lunch time and the 17 year old, who committed the crime, was said to be heavily armed with three guns and two grenades. The attack was so serious that anti-terrorist commandos from the elite Raid force were sent to the scene.
One student reported hearing four gunshots while another heard three loud bangs and turned around to see a shooter. Police say the headmaster seemed to be the target and was one of the few to be injured.
