Another Parkland?

Ann Althouse quotes a N.Y. Times article (behind a paywall):
"First, a teacher found Ethan Crumbley searching online for ammunition. The next day, there was an alarming note on his desk: “The thoughts won’t stop. Help me.” School officials met with Mr. Crumbley, 15, and his parents, informing them that he needed to begin counseling within 48 hours. After his parents resisted bringing him home, administrators allowed him to stay in school...."

While the parents should not have purchased a handgun for their son or given him unlimited access to it, it also appears that the school had good reason to believe that the shooter was mentally ill and possibly a hazard to self or others
