Nathaniel Berhow, the suspected 16-year-old shooter who killed two classmates and injured three others before attempting to take his own life in a 16-second rampage at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, on Thursday, was a “quiet” Boy Scouts member who recently suffered the loss of his father.

Police say they received a 911 call at 7:38 a.m. about a shooting at Saugus High School and officers arrived within two minutes and found six students in the quad suffering from gunshot wounds.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the students appeared to be randomly targeted by Berhow whose identity was revealed on Thursday by several news outlets.
