VIDEO: Press Conference – Threat of Mass Violence at Leonardtown High School

February 21, 2018

Two students made statements that they would bring guns to school and had the necessary tactics to exceed the number of persons killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

On Thursday February 15, 2018, at approximately 2:50 p.m., two male Leonardtown High School students were on the afternoon bus ride home and were overheard by witnesses discussing the recent shooting in Parkland Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The two students made statements that they would bring guns to school and had the necessary tactics to exceed the number of persons killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The St. Mary’s County Board of education’s Office of safety and security contacted the Sheriff’s Office on Friday, February 16, shortly after midnight and relayed the stated threat made by the two students.  At 12:15 a.m., Deputies went to the homes of both students and spoke with the students and parent(s).  The students denied making a threat. The Parent(s) assured deputies that the students had NO access to firearms. Both students were directed not to go to the school in the morning and wait until they were contacted by the Board of Education.

The morning of the Friday, February 16, 2018, Cpl. Angela Delozier, the School Resource Officer at Leonardtown High School continued the investigation. Every passenger that was on the bus with the two juvenile suspects the afternoon prior was interviewed by Cpl. Delozier.

Cpl. Delozier was familiar with the suspect juvenile students and in fact had addressed concerns with Parent(s) in the past concerning social media picture posts with the juvenile student(s) posing with guns.

Cpl. Delozier briefed Asst. States Attorney Daniel White on the case, and investigators were directed to obtain a search and seizure warrant for the home of David William Fairfax, age 39, of Leonardtown, (parent of juvenile student suspect#1) and the person of juvenile suspect #2. Pursuant to the search warrant 39 unsecured firearms were seized. These include a handgun in the 14-year-old sons room, and a handgun in the room of 15-year-old juvenile student’s bedroom.  Firearms that were secured were not seized.

On Tuesday February 20, 2018, Sheriff’s Office Detectives briefed and met with the States Attorney, FBI, and ATF.

Detectives were directed by the States Attorney to apply for an additional search and seizure warrant to seize all firearms and parts from the home and shop of David Fairfax. At 3:45 p.m., the search warrant was executed, and an additional 25 firearms were seized (8 shotguns, 9 rifles, 8 handguns) as well as gun parts, gunpowder, ammunition, and suppressors.

    MORE LETS BANN ALL TEHSE GUNS PEOPLE!!!!!

  2. mike on February 21, 2018 at 7:27 pm

    When us Democrats get fully back in office we will get full control of everything because a controlled society is a better society. Also when we get fully in control we will push a bill to ban all guns from the hands of ordinary citizen’s only the police & military will be able to have fire arms. Look of Australia they got rid of all their guns and the citizen are doing find also they have less crime. We of America can take a lesson from Australia.

    • Get Real on February 22, 2018 at 8:03 am

      That will NEVER happen. You want socialism and communism, move to Russia.
      You like it down under – move there.

      There is more than one reason why America is the greatest nation on earth. But the constitution is certainly one of the most obvious.

      You think murders will stop, even if you could take all of the guns? You are a fool. If we outlawed them,(which cannot happen without amendment changes) then the criminals would enjoy that “total control” you think democrats like you could achieve.

      Guns are “tools” that will not ever simply “go away”. They ARE HERE – like them or not. So either “man up” as an equal – or be conquered and preyed upon. There is no other option. What an idiot you must be!

      Minors are already prohibited from toting guns as are criminals. It does not stop it. No more than any other law stops the crime. It only makes a way to punish the criminal. But if it is NOT punished from the judges – then don’t look for it to decrease or cease.

      Schools must severely upgrade their security – cost is no longer an excuse. But you are surely a fool to spew out what you said.

      Its hard to take you seriously when you can barely convey a coherent thought. Aside from that, the Democrats are the biggest hypocrites on the planet. In 2009/2010, they had complete control of the government (white house, house, and senate). The conservatives were literally powerless to stop them. Did the Democrats take that opportunity to put forth ANY solutions to the gun problems in this country? NO. They were too busy “fixing” a healthcare system that had some worts but otherwise wasnt “broken”. Not trying to argue the ACA regarding this, but it hasnt solved the problems it was supposed to solve when they rammed it through Congress, and it has taken thousands of dollars out of most peoples pockets. The point is, school shootings arent a new thing. Columbine was 1999. A full decade before Obama was elected. And the liberals, after seizing complete control of the government, couldnt be bothered to put forth legislation on guns. Wonder why? Oh thats right, they were selling weapons to mexican drug cartels, what a brilliant plan that was. I am not in favor of a gun ban, Chicago is all the evidence you need that banning guns isnt going to work. But I am certainly in favor of laws and regulations making it harder to get your hands on guns. Of course, that wont impact the illegal gun market.

      I don’t know if you have ever been to Australia, but I lived there for 3 years. People get killed by guns there every day. Most people get killed by being beat with a hammer or stabbed with a screwdriver. If someone breaks into your home, you have no defense except to run. Your comment about a controlled society sounds just like what the Communist have done over the course of history. Check that out sometime.

      Wow, this is an interesting take on how your side will turn things into the peoples republic of America. I guess it works for North Korea. Maybe freedom has a different meaning to you. What is your plan for getting illegal guns off the streets? People like you as a hard core democrat and hard core republicans are part of the problem and unwilling to compromise on a solution. Australia is not a good example of how gun control can work in this country. They do not have the gangs, illegal guns, and inner city/trailer park crime we have in this country. Both sides need to get their heads out of their @$$’s and come up with common sense gun legislation like mental health restrictions and no guns for people with protective orders against them. The sad truth is that people that want to kill will kill. If you take away their guns they will run people down with trucks, build a bomb out of a pressure cooker, use knives, or just get an illegal gun which is much easier then getting a legal one at this point. Your all or nothing attitude is what is ruining this country.

        • FFL Guy on February 23, 2018 at 7:52 am

          Check Maryland law 2013 Firearms protection Act – Juveniles will not have ready access to firearms. Firearm owner/possessor assumes all responsibility and may face legal action. Must be locked up or secured. Define “secured” and “locked up” on your own, this State has a way of issuing nebulous laws and enforcing as they choose to interpret.

          • Mm00se on February 23, 2018 at 7:06 pm

        What if I say I was walking in the mall and over heard a conversation about a mass shooting, and gave them your address. In the interest of safety, I think the ATF, the FBI, and the Police should smash down your door at 2:30 am for a raid on your property. Even if I’m wrong, its in the interest of the safety of all, so its justified…

    What difference does it make if you are a republican or Democrat ? If the person is sick in the head. As most shooters are. It will make no difference. As far as the Australia goes, I read an article and see pictures of the guns they seized . Their crime rate has risen since then . Guns are not the problem.
    Lack of discipline from the parents is the problem. This causes bullying . When bullying continues, people snap when they can’t take it any more .That is why we have all these mass shootings.
    The government needs to allow parents to discipline their children when they get out of hand,
    ( yes that means a good ass whooping ) and put God back in schools

    • Anonymous on February 22, 2018 at 2:29 pm

      I agree that parenting is a big part of the problem but you lost me with the bullying and god part. Bullying has been around since the beginning of time but mass shootings and school shootings are a somewhat recent phenomenon. This everybody wins and making the kid the center of the universe attitude makes kids unable to handle situations when they find out they can lose and the world doesn’t stop for them. As for the God argument, I am an atheist. I treat people with respect, I work hard, I volunteer, I donate to charities, etc… I never felt like I needed a spiritual being to tell me not to kill, steal, or screw my neighbors wife. A good upbringing and common sense is all I needed to wade through a lifetime of moral dilemmas. However, if a fear of God is what is needed for you and others to not kill then by all means, fear away.

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control:

    You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

    Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

    With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.

    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

    If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.

      )n Sept 11 2001 hijackers took control of 4 airliners and killed 3000 Americans in the span of 2 hours using box cutters. The government made it illegal to carry and form on knives or weapons on commercial aircraft. Since that law came into effect no other hijackers have ever repeated the feat.

        Wow, what a rant, circled the world three times and still doesn’t say anything relevant.

        It’s called the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment is a Right. The reason for the 2nd Amendment came about was the British actions at Lexington and Concord. in order to subjugate the Colonials, the British needed to disarm them. The March to Lexington was to take control of and remove the powder and ammunition stores in the local militia storage. That is what sparked the shooting stage of the Revolutionary War.

        Firearms are not about hunting, they are not about sport shooting or target shooting, they are about ensuring the public is capable of standing up to a tyrannical and subjugating government. To allow for the people to restrict and reform the government if necessary. The power (through the Constitution) resides in the people, not the government.

        And you want to take away something based on pure emotion over an incident that is more rare then winning the lottery. Taking something away from responsible adults because .0001% of the population is irresponsible is irrational. This would be like me saying I don’t drink alcohol but I think it should be banned since it is responsible for way more innocent people being killed every day then an assault rifle. The only difference is alcohol related deaths are spread out across the country so it goes primarily under the radar while this was an isolated mass incident. This is nothing more then a kneejerk reaction. Remember, 17 people died in that mass shooting which is a real tragedy but every day 28 people die in the US by car crash’s that involves alcohol. I don’t even own a gun, I just hate to see something banned because a very small percentage of people can’t control themselves.

    What’s the difference – Demo or Rep? The students who reported the threats are to be commended on their bravery. Yes, bravery.

  8. annoyed on February 22, 2018 at 10:18 am

    Let’s be real! The only difference between 2018 and 1998 is the kids and parents. We would never have thought of taking guns to school nor would we have thought we could be shot while getting an education. First we would have been expelled and would have never went back, second our parents would have beat our ass and we would not have seen the light of day. We feared our parents, they were not the friends we drank with and hung out with. The problem is not guns. It’s parents and kids. Like everything in life not 100% of everyone but its the 25% that ruins it for the rest. It’s accountability, for the small inappropriate behaviors that lead to a total loss of control in schools and neighborhoods. It is the parents who have made excuses for there kids behavior and grades and blamed others. It is the government who has tied the hands of teachers and school administrators. Kids cannot be expelled or suspended unless extreme circumstances present. The fact that teenagers come and go, dress as they want, disrespect adults and teachers because there parents don’t mind, the fact that we give them 10 chances at everything academic. All has lead to a generation that does not understand that actions have consequences. They don’t understand that life does not give you 10 chances. Parents don’t like a grade on a test or a teacher, they call school and threaten to sue or cause more problems. The school system cave.

    Next the word Bully is used too much. I am not a bully because I tell a child to grow up and act like they have common sense, because I tell them to stand for the Pledge, to wear a dress to there knees or a shirt that covers there chest. You are not being Bullied cause your friend tells you that your hair color doesn’t look good, that they don’t like you and want new friends. Social media has desensitized our youth. The first thing they think of when a tragedy happens is to film it. Really? Parents stop making your kids your friends. Punish them. Don’t let them leave in the morning without looking presentable. Treat them like a boss would treat them. Don’t give them things unless they earn it.
    It amazes me that no one talks about how easy it is to get guns in the inner city’s and you don’t have school shootings and bully issues there. Why is that? Do you think those kids are so different? Yeah they are, they are in survivable mode, get out and ahead mode. Not what are you gonna do for me mode or what you owe me mode. You can outlaw guns, bump stocks all of it. Just like drugs they will find it if they want it. We need to talk about the real issues facing our future not create more laws trying to fix it.

    • anonymous on March 1, 2018 at 12:35 pm

      Donald J. Trump has desensitized us/US, more than anything else, recently. Do you go around acting like a Vigilante shooting people because you watched the plethora of Westerns on TV, at one time? Do you act like Carol Burnett? Does your family act like Leave it to Beaver? Or better yet, do go around blowing stuff up like the Wile E. Coyote? Sure children need good parenting, and that includes the word “No,” which should be used more often than anything else.

      Before Trump, the desensitizing of Republicans came from Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity and Mark Levin and still does. Why are you so scared of 150 Hollywood-types, that might equal one constantly libelous Right-wing Republican crap-spewing, pot stirrer. Those three, plus Laura Ingram rarely have more than anecdotal evidence of their claims. Those fours scare tactics are worse than anything coming from a tree-hunging liberal. Often, the four plying it’s viewer to continue to watch – what’s coming after the break- with some ‘bombshell,’ then ends the show with a dud of epic proportion. All the while impersonating a real newscaster, when it’s all for dumming up “fear” and a side of “entertainment”, no better than the watching a male soap opera, the WWE.

      You are entitled to your opinion, however, you do not have the power to make decisions over what I do, do not do, or own. If you choose to not own a firearm, that is fine, but don’t restrict my right to do so.

        I’m simply trying to “well REGULATE the Militia.”

    You should use your real name Anonymous. You sound absolutely brilliant. Anonymous for Sheriff!

    All mass shooting are conducted by legal purchase. It is a lot easier to aquire a legally bought weapon from a fried or relative then to go and steal it from someone else

      Google the difference between “then” and “than”, and maybe we can start taking your whining seriously. Since you are so against guns, I think you should start a registry of addresses that dont have guns. Publish it on the internet for all to see. So that the criminals can identify the “soft targets”, err, I mean, so that we can all celebrate those people that are so thoughtful and caring that they would give up their right to own a gun

      Fried? I think your brain is fried. Keep voting Democrat, you will be fine!

    Ignorance is a blessing. Believe what you want. You have that right. When someone is picked on every day. It takes a toll on their mind. A person can only take so much before they snap. Children had been known to take their own lives to get the bullying to stop. Others took their anger out on those that caused their pain.
    It is not official yet. But I bet that kid did the shooting in Fla was bullied. He went to school and took care of those who caused his pain. Maybe a few not intended. But once he was done. He left school . Instead of continuing shooting.
    As part of God in school. It was not there to put fear in kids.

    *I Commend the students for reporting because obviously they had the weapons to commit the terror.
    * These students and places of gatherings we all want to feel safe and happy not fearing for your life.
    * Why is it harder to get a drivers license that involves taking tests and classes and driving ability and age requirement. But nothing even close to those requirements for ownership of a gun especially non hunting guns like semiautomatic and bumpstop attachment.
    * I’m not saying take alway the right to own firearms but certainly age requirements based on age and type of gun and similar requirements as if you must possess a drivers license.
    *Hunting and using guns for sport and protection is every Americans right but these horrific tragedies is must stop for our humanity please god help us.
    *The NRA should stand behind these students from parkland young peoples stand up and and speak you can make the changes for a peaceful future
    Thank you
    some of these conversations I read are nonsense. I wish people change from being me me me world

      Believe it or not, Modern Sporting Rifles like the Armalite-15 (AR-15) are “hunting guns”. The .223, 5.56mm, 6.5mm, 6.8mm, .300, .450, and .50 caliber configured rifles are used to hunt fox, deer, boar (wild pig), elk, and other game.

      Or if you are targeting semiautomatic rifles as non-hunting guns, there are .22 semi-autos which I hunted many squirrels and rabbits with, .300 savage, 30.06, 7mm, rifles that are used for big game hunting (BAR, Remington Model 770 8/81, M1 Garand, and many more). As I stated earlier, the 2nd Amendment is not about Hunting, it is about maintaining the power of the people over Government as opposed to the other way around.

    Legitimate question here? How would gun laws have prevented this individual from perpetrating a mass casualty crime? Lets take a walk into liberal utopia land where there are no guns. Would that have prevented him from committing a heinous act? Would a gun ban prevent mental illness? Would a gun ban have prevented him from stealing a commercial size truck and mowing down all these kids as they walked out of the school at the end of the day? Liberals always focus on the “tool”, as if that solves the problem. It’s never the drug user’s fault, its the drug’s fault. It’s never the shooter’s fault, its the gun’s fault. Its sort of terrifying that you actually believe a gun ban will immediately stop ALL gun crime. Lets say they pass a law on March 1 that all firearms are illegal. I bet you on March 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and 5th there will be gun crimes.

    Here is a deal for the anti gun crowd. I’m being serious. When you successfully rid america of tobacco (responsible for 480,000 deaths every year), and then you successfully rid america of alcohol (responsible for 80,000 deaths every year), then we can discuss firearms (responsible for 11,000 deaths every year)… Ok, just to be a good sport about this, I’ll even include gun related suicides. So guns are responsible for 23,000 deaths every year. Still only a quarter of the carnage of alcohol.

    • Shawn on February 23, 2018 at 10:25 pm

      A gun ban would have prevented this arsenal from ever being obtained. Their would no longer be a threat of gun violence. Both alcohol and tobacco may be bad but the sale and use of these items are for the sole purpose of consumption. the sole purpose for the use of a gun is to kill.

        Not trying to be rude, but if you don’t know the difference between “there”, “their”, and “they’re”, how are we supposed to take your posts seriously?

    • anonymous on February 24, 2018 at 1:09 am

      What about copious amounts of fat, salt, and sugar.

  17. Shawn on February 23, 2018 at 4:29 pm

    But But But Criminals don’t follow the law thet will get guns illegally to kill is the most BS statement people say to defend their right to own guns. This entire arsenal that was confiscated was purchased legally. All mass murder shooting were conducted by legally purchased firearms. It’s harder to get a gun illegally then legally. Wake up people!

    • Anonymous on February 26, 2018 at 2:33 pm

      Where are your facts backing up your statement that it’s harder to get a gun illegally versus legally? Have you ever tried to get a gun illegally? Have you ever tried to get a gun legally? You are just making stuff up as you go along and it’s not helping your case. The majority of people commenting on this post have spoken against you…so are you right and 20 people are wrong? Please stop making irrational and impulsive comments, it makes you look stupid.

      • Shawn on February 26, 2018 at 5:29 pm

        Have you or anybody on this page ever try to get a gun that was never bought or sold in the US. All gun confiscated in crimes were sold legally at one point within the US.

  18. Shawn on February 23, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    Imagine that a Law abiding citizen who purchased his guns legally and says that it’s his right to protect him self with his 30+ guns, is now part of an investigation for arming his law abiding kid who threatened to commit a possible mass shooting at a school.

  19. Night Owl on February 24, 2018 at 1:06 am

    Okay… so are the kids going to receive any mental help? Taking the guns away isn’t going to do anything. Who knows, perhaps that’s even a motivator for people with that kind of mindset. I guess the positive aspect of this story is that people are actively listening for, reporting, and acting upon these incidents before they turn into something bigger. But taking away the guns may only be a temporary roadblock.

    Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. This is the same generation of kids that invented the Tide-Pod challenge. Liberalism: Find a Cure.

    Could I just put a little snippet in here! Does anyone think the parents who are responsible for these two are at fault. Shouldn’t we expect more from them? Forget the government, its not their responsibility to raise our kids last time I checked.

    Don’t let this distract you from the fact that In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them….maybe you can hire The A-Team.

    shawn is the dumbest window licker i have ever read a statement from. Please Shawn…spit out the crayons you are chewing and turn the gas stove on with pilot out. wait 30 minutes and the have smoke. You are effing stooopid

  26. Patriot4God on February 26, 2018 at 8:17 pm

    I said it before and I say it again we don’t have a gun problem’ we have a Heart problem’. if we ban guns or make them more harder to get the criminal’s are not going to obey the laws. They will get the gun of their choice to comment the crime that they want to comment. For example look at Drugs the number one killer around the world Drugs are ban to be sold but still they are killing people still they are being sold. I say it again we don’t have a gun problem we have a heart problem. “There is a saying what can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good Guy or Gal with a gun”. The Firearm is just a tool in the right hands it can protect you your family & others or put food on your table’, In the wrong hands it can do allot of damage.

    So what you’re telling me, is that the sheriff “raided” a FFL and found guns.

    So if I call the tip line and told them that the CVS is full of drugs, would I get a reward?

    We Don’t need gun control! We don’t need childish name calling! We need Safer Schools! We need to show respect and listen! Our Children are scared and our bickering and name calling and Stubornes is getting us no where FAST! We need bullet proof windows, more school resource officers, school psychologist, and highly trained school safety monitores.
