@drawman: She's a full-out Police Officer.
It was my mistake thinking she was part of the school`s staff, eh? I`d never come across that term before (or just understood it as "security"). Several articles described her as "staff" and one even called her a "teacher". Shows how easy it is the report the news WRONGLY, eh?

I can't believe you people having a go at the lack of training the security guard has or hasn`t had. She probably works 12 hour shifts for $2 an hour and her training will consist of "Can you find your way here without assistance?" I`ve had security jobs and they really are the lowest of the low. I for one would not put my ass in the firing line with the way they are treated.

It's true: She let him get into the building. There was the Principal and a student in the door-way area, if she had locked him out? They would have been in danger. Of course she could have shot him right then & there, and few people would fault her for it. His gun was out, others were in danger.
The reason they shot him later was because he became very agitated and acted in a dangerous way, so they dropped him.
So I agree, she could (perhaps should have) have shot him right away, and put and end to the danger. What she did was (I`m presuming) try to save his life, while not putting others at risk.
