Description

"Nathaniel Brazill, a student who earned good grades, was sent home after a water-balloon fight on the last day of school and returned with a pistol. When his favorite teacher, Barry Grunow, refused to let him see two girls in his class, Brazill pulled the pistol and shot Grunow to death. The Palm Beach Post in that first-day coverage showed that Brazill was an honors student, that he had told other students about his gun, that he walked in armed despite the school's security measures and that other students could have prevented the shooting if then had told a teacher or someone about Brazill's gun."
