Following the horrific bloodshed at Perry High, where he was a student, the gunman, Dylan Butler, 17, was also discovered dead.

He broke into the building, which is located about 40 miles west of Des Moines, according to the police, at approximately 7:40 a.m. local time, right before the start of the spring semester.

Butler then started firing, once killing 11-year-old Jolliff with a pump-action shotgun and another small-caliber handgun.

He reportedly sustained three gunshot wounds, according to the authorities.

Zoey Bautista, a student, told KCCI, “He was my best friend.” “He was there for everyone at all times.”

Dan Marburger, the principal of Perry High School, who has been there for around 25 years, was also hurt in the gunshots.

According to the Iowa Department of Public Safety, “the investigation thus far confirms Principal Marburger acted selflessly and placed himself in harm’s way in an apparent effort to protect his students.”

In a Facebook post, his daughter said that he tried to give the gunman as much time as possible to escape by approaching him close to the cafeteria, where a scattering of students were having breakfast. She mentioned that her father’s status was categorized as stable following a number of procedures. Clark Wicks, the superintendent of schools in Perry, referred to Marburger as a “hero” and said that he probably “saved some lives.”

The Iowa Department of Public Safety verified that the remaining victims have subsequently been treated and released, leaving two more pupils hospitalized.

An investigation is still underway, and there is still no obvious motive for the horrific violence.
