(TROUTDALE, Ore.) -- The teenager who shot a fellow student in an Oregon school was identified Wednesday as Jared Michael Padgett. He came to the school with a rifle, a handgun and nine loaded magazines capable of holding several hundred rounds of ammunition.
The freshman killed Emilio Hoffman, 14, in the school locker room and exchanged gunfire in the hallway with police before killing himself.
The motive for Padgett's outburst remains a mystery, police said.
"We have not established any link between the shooter and the victim," a police spokesman said.
He added, "At this time it would be inappropriate to discuss a possible motive" for the shooting.
