Local story I found interesting, not getting any national exposure because of the Parkland murders, and technically involving the shooting of a student:

Yesterday morning, an armed gunman took over 100 people hostage at a homeless shelter/community center here in town. An unarmed student along with shelter security confronted the gunman and managed to disarm him.

Then the police arrived on the scene and shot the student who'd disarmed the gunman. Luckily, no fatalities, but my wife works at the hospital they took the victim, so she was torn last night between really wanting to talk about it, and not being allowed to say anything.
