PERRY HALL, Md. (AP) - The father of a 15-year-old student who police say shot another student at a Baltimore County high school says his son was bullied.
The father spoke to a reporter at his home Monday evening and said his son was the shooter. The Associated Press is not identifying the teen or his family because he is a juvenile and has not been charged.
A woman who was also at the home and said she was related to the father, gave the following statement on the family's behalf: "We are horrified. We did not see this coming and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and the victim's family."
When asked about a motive for the shooting, the father indicated his son had been bullied. He gave no further details.
