FOX - 18-year-old Timothy George Simpkins is now in custody for a school shooting that left four people hurt at Timberview High School in Arlington this morning. What started out initially as a fight between Simpkins and another individual quickly escalated when Simpkins drew a weapon and fired an undetermined amount of shots. And while the alleged gunman’s family says they are not justifying him bringing a gun, they hope the investigation will reveal more about the circumstances at play. "The decision he made, taking the gun, we are not justifying that. That was not right," said family member Carol Harrison Lafayette. "But he was trying to protect himself. We hope the police department does the investigation properly."
