"Today, [Marion County] should be proud of their first responders. They did not hesitate, went in and basically in three minutes engaged with the shooter and brought him into custody," Woods said. 

The shooting occurred on the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting. Nineteen years ago, 12 students and one teacher were shot by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, who killed themselves after the attack.

Woods said during the press conference that he was angry the incident occurred at the school, where 2,000 students are enrolled. He said he did not want parents or students in the county to fear going back to school.

“It’s a shame what society has come to and that we even need to be here on a school campus. This is not just a law enforcement problem, this a society problem. We as a whole need to do something," he said.

Woods said he did not know if the shooter intentionally chose this day for the attack.
