A New Jersey teacher has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of three students at a New Jersey high school.
The indictment says 29-year-old Thomas G. Hynes was at the school with his wife and two children when the shooting occurred on June 30, 2016.
Police say Hynes, who was fired last week, was the teacher who confronted the gunman and fired at least six rounds at the classroom.
Hensley has been released from jail.
Henson, of South Orange, was arrested Wednesday at his home in Fort Lee, New Jersey, where he was being held without bail, according to the state Department of Corrections.
He was also charged with two counts of attempted second-chance murder.
Two of the three students died.
Hansens wife was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, reckless endangering, reckless discharge of a firearm and reckless endangerance, police said.
Police said the father of one of the students was in critical condition at a hospital, and a second student was listed in stable condition.
Hentsley was fired from his job with the Edison-Syracuse Area School District in October after the shooting.
He had been the district’s principal for eight years.
He also worked for the South Orange Police Department, where his wife was a police officer.
The shooting happened at the Edison Middle School.
A third student, a third-grade student, died at the scene.
The suspect, identified as Thomas Hensleys son, was charged as a juvenile with aggravated endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment, authorities said.
He is being held on $1 million bail.
Police did not say how many rounds Hensles gun fired.
