After 4 People Shot with a Gun Purchased Illegally the Suspected Texas High School Gunman Released on Bail — One Day After Teacher and Students Shot

Suspected Texas high school gunman released on bail — one day after teacher and students shot":
The Texas student who allegedly opened fire at his high school, injuring four people, including a teacher, was sprung from jail on Thursday afternoon — as an attorney who joined him by his side insisted that the case wasn’t a “standard-issue school shooting.”
Timothy George Simpkins, 18, who attends Timberview High School in Arlington, will report to home confinement after he posted $75,000 bond at Tarrant County Jail, news station WFAA reported.
Simpkins, who was wearing a blue baseball cap and graphic t-shirt, didn’t answer questions from reporters as he was escorted from the jailhouse by two relatives into the back seat of a white Mercedes sedan.
As part of the conditions of his release, he will also have to submit to drug and alcohol testing and wear a GPS monitoring device.
