Nicholas Elliott came to Atlantic Shores Christian School armed with a firearm an adult relative purchased for him. He shot two teachers, one fatally, before barging into a portable classroom full of students. The gun jammed and Elliott was tackled. When the teacher that tackled him demanded to know why, he said "They hate me. They make fun of me. They hit me."
