For the 2017 shooting at Freeman High School, which resulted in one student’s death and three additional injuries, 20-year-old Caleb Sharpe was given a 40-year jail term on Friday.

A revolver, an assault-style rifle, and many boxes of ammunition were found in a bag that Freeman High School student Caleb Sharpe brought into the building on September 13, 2017.

He allegedly tried to use the gun, but the jam prevented him from loading it. Sam Strahan, a fellow student, confronted Caleb, who shot him with a revolver and instantly killed him. He was accused by the prosecution of continuing to shoot three other students without killing them.

Caleb Sharpe, who was raised in Spokane, Washington, was 15 years old when the incident occurred. The shooter, according to The Independent, was a quiet young man with a soft-spoken demeanour.

Sharpe was a frequent YouTube user who went by the name “Mungo Walker” when posting videos. His social media profiles were filled with anti-feminist memes, gun-related content, and fake shootouts.

According to the Spokesman, Sharpe’s immaturity, mental health problems, and learning disabilities, such as depression and untreated ADHD, contributed to the shooting. According to psychologist Craig Beaver, Sharpe had to deal with his father’s emotional abuse and loneliness.

Beaver continued by saying that Sharpe had written two suicide notes and had become more and more isolated before the shooting. In addition, he found it upsetting that his step-siblings had left the house and that his family had moved around a lot.
