The Texas student, Timothy George Simpkins, 18, was freed from the prison this Thursday and didn’t want to answer to reporter’s questions.

He was accompanied by his attorney, who shared that the media overblew the shooting.

Civil rights attorney Kim T. Cole shared that the shooting wasn’t a standard-issue school shooting. Many of the statements say that the media created bombshell news and it wasn’t like that.

One of the four victims was a teacher shot in the back after attempting to fight.

New York Post reported:

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.

Civil rights attorney Kim T. Cole, who spoke on behalf of the family, blasted reporters outside the jail for portraying the dangerous incident as a “standard-issue school shooting.”

“There are numerous school shootings that have occurred across this country which are tragic. All school shootings are tragic,” Cole said.  “However, in this situation, this was not someone who was just out to go and shoot a school and had made up their mind [and said,] ‘You know hey I’m upset and I’m just going to shoot anyone I see.’”

“That was not the situation here. So I request the media correct their narrative with regard to what happened, and that you all respect the family’s privacy,” she continued.

A family spokeswoman has claimed that he acted out of self-defense after being robbed and targeted by bullies.

The Daily Wire reported on this shooting:

“The student accused of injuring four people in a shooting at Timberview High School in Arlington on Wednesday was released on bail from the Tarrant County Jail on Thursday,” The Star Telegram reported, adding that the suspect was charged “with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.”

Due to company policy, The Daily Wire does not name or show pictures of mass shooters and alleged mass shooters.

The suspect had been transferred from Arlington jail to the Tarrant County facility before being released after posting a $75,000 bond. Video posted online showed the suspect being released.

The alleged school shooter, who is a black male, turned himself into law enforcement hours after the shooting, which sent multiple people to the hospital.

The New York Post reported:

Footage on social media allegedly showed [the suspect] getting into an altercation during class with another student that escalated to gunfire Wednesday. The fight was broken up and the two students calmed down, but then [the suspect] pulled out a firearm from his orange backpack and fired several shots that struck three people, according to an arrest warrant Thursday.

Calvin Pettitt, a 25-year-old English teacher who jumped in to break up the fight, was shot in the back, suffering broken ribs and a collapsed lung, according to police and his family. The other victims were identified as Zacchaeus Selby, Eyimofe Olawepo and Pariesa Altma, according to a bond document obtained by Dallas News.
