Carlos Arredondo, who has been seen in a now-infamous (warning: graphic content) photo pinching a victim’s femoral artery while escorting him in a wheelchair to an ambulance, shakes uncontrollably as he describes in the video below what the bomb site looked like immediately after the explosion - and what he did to help and comfort the victims. The most heart-wrenching part is when he tells of the woman that he saw suffering, but was unable to assist because he could “only help only one at a time.”

According to the Detroit News, the 14-year-old boy shot himself in the head with a .40 caliber Glock before classes started at 8 a.m. The News said he was found by another student in the school. The victim was transported to a local hospital, where he later died.

Southgate Schools Superintendent William Grusecki said the boy did leave a note.
The Detroit Free Press noted that the school had no metal detectors.
