The family of a suspected school shooter started a fundraiser to help the teen, but got a rude awakening when the website hosting the drive shut it down.
The fundraiser for 18-year-old Timothy Simpkins, the Timberview High School student who is alleged to have shot a fellow student and a teacher in an assault that rocked Arlington, Texas, was started Thursday, according to the UK Daily Mail.
Dallas attorney Kim T. Cole and several of Simpkins’ friends and relatives were behind the GoFundMe drive.
The fundraiser ran as one of the victims, 15-year-old Zacchaeus Selby, was left in critical condition from multiple gunshot wounds. Selby was seemingly unarmed at the time of the shooting, which nearly killed a teacher.
