Not "gun free", but a new one:
Faux News wrote:Shooter or shooters likely at large after Ohio massacre, investigators say

One or more shooters are believed to be on the loose, "armed and dangerous," after a brutal string of shootings in four homes killed a total of eight family members in southern Ohio Friday, investigators said.

The eight relatives -- seven adults and a 16-year-old boy -- were apparently shot in the head "execution-style," Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told reporters.

Nutshell: A family of four was arrested Tuesday in the gruesome slayings of eight people from another family in rural southern Ohio in 2016. Four members of the Wagner family, who lived near the scenes of the killing about 60 miles (97 kilometers) south of Columbus.
Motive: Unreported.

Chicago hospital shooting: Young cop, doctor, pharmacy resident and gunman die in Mercy Hospital attack
Chicago Tribune

Note: Any hospital in Chicago is a "gun free zone" by law.
... Police had been called to the hospital after Juan Lopez, 32, confronted emergency room doctor Tamara O’Neal, apparently over a "broken engagement," sources said. By the time Jimenez and his partner arrived on the scene, Lopez had shot O’Neal repeatedly, standing over her as he fired the last shots, according to police sources and witnesses. ...
Analysis: Top story because it happened in a hospital and a cop got shot.

Mercy Hospital shooter worked as intern for Ald. Roberto Maldonado
Chicago Sun Times
Ald. Roberto Maldonado (26th) said Wednesday that the Mercy Hospital shooter previously worked as a summer intern at his Northwest Side aldermanic office.

“He had a very, very pleasant personality,” Maldonado said of Juan Lopez, noting that his internship lasted for about eight weeks in either 2016 or 2017.

Maldonado’s office is at 2511 W. Division St. in Humboldt Park.

The alderman said the city runs the internship program and that he didn’t personally choose Lopez or know him before he applied for the job.

“I think he was the only person who applied. You have to be a college student to apply,” he said.

“Interns are not assigned to do much of significance, they’re basically gofers for the very limited staff that we have… He had no decision making authority,” Maldonado said, adding that Lopez mostly was tasked with shuffling papers and getting coffee.

Maldonado said he played no role in helping Lopez secure a job earlier this year with the Chicago Housing Authority.

On Monday, Lopez shot his ex-fiancee, Dr. Tamara O’Neal, in the parking lot of Mercy Hospital. O’Neal was an emergency room doctor at the hospital

Lopez also shot and killed Chicago police Officer Samuel Jimenez and pharmacist Dayna Less before he was shot by police and ultimately shot himself in the head.

Faculty members at Oakland University in suburban Detroit have received hockey pucks and are being trained to use them to potentially thwart active shooters.
...
University Police Chief Mark Gordon says to fight effectively, faculty and students need to be prepared to throw heavy objects that will cause a distraction. Gordon says pucks fit the bill and can conveniently be carried in brief cases or backpacks.

The faculty union also is working with student groups to distribute an additional 1,700 pucks to students.

They're also implementing interior door locks. Shooters will just give up in the face of such measures.

No, but anything that might buy some time and save a few lives I suppose.

Unfortunately Murphy's law: it won't be locked when it needed to be.

Wait, you mean they don't already have interior door locks?

And here's an uplifting story. Sort of.

Girl shot 7 times at Indiana school performs at Colts game

I wonder how The Onion would frame this one.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A teenage girl who was shot seven times at a central Indiana middle school has performed with Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders.

Ella Whistler danced with the cheer squad at Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. The Indianapolis Star reports she also sang the national anthem with the school choir.

Whistler and teacher Jason Seaman were shot at Noblesville West Middle School in May by a 13-year-old boy who later admitted to the shooting. Whistler’s family previously said she was shot in the face, neck and chest, and suffered collapsed lungs and several broken bones.

A judge ruled earlier this month that the boy should be held at a state juvenile detention center until he is 18 or deemed rehabilitated.

Ella Whistler performed during the Colts’ win wearing her Noblesville West uniform.
In the picture it appears as if she has made a full recovery, or at least I see no visible sign that she was injured.

But damn, 13-year-old boys shooting their classmates and teacher. Kids shouldn't have to deal with this shit at school. Who gave him the gun?

I guess this one didn't make the news because nobody died.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noblesvil ... l_shooting
The shooter asked to be excused during a science test. He returned to the classroom with two handguns and fired at two people: a thirteen-year-old student; Ella Whistler[3] and the assailant's science teacher. The science teacher, Jason Seaman,[4] swatted the weapons away from the assailant before wrestling him to the ground, sustaining bullet wounds in the process. Students recounted that Seaman was yelling at the students to call 911, and to evacuate from the room.[5] Seaman later stated that his actions were "...the only acceptable actions I could have done given the circumstances."[6]

Students were evacuated to the Noblesville High School gym. The Noblesville Police Chief stated that there was a secondary threat made at Noblesville High School, that was only a communicated threat but still prompted police to secure the area.[7]

Police stated that the suspect was arrested shortly after the incident and that at the time of arrest he didn't appear to be injured.[6] A school resource officer on the campus responded to the incident.[8]

The Hamilton County prosecutors publicly released the name of the suspect and identified him as a male 13-year old Noblesville West Middle School student.[9] However, most news outlets withheld reporting the name of the suspect because of his juvenile status and because he will not be charged as an adult.

A Noblesville Police Department spokesperson reported that the suspect had not been placed in the system prior to the incident at the school.[10] Prosecutors have reported that at the time of his arrest the suspect was in possession of a .22 caliber gun, a .45 caliber gun and a knife.[11]

Classmates and friends of the suspect claim that he was normally friendly and funny, and openly interacted with other students.[12]
So this "normally friendly and funny" child had access to two guns and a knife and brought them to school. And his parents' responsibility for this?

Therein lies part of the problem: utter negligence.

But the unpredictable will remain so.
