Robert Butler Jr. was pulled from his first-period class Wednesday at Millard South High School, summoned to the school office to face the music.

A school security camera had caught the 17-year-old senior — who transferred to the school this past fall — driving across a school football field. Assistant Principal Vicki Kaspar informed him of his penalty: a 19-day suspension.

Butler was escorted out of the school. Sometime afterward, he posted an item on Facebook about the “evil” that the school had driven him to.

As the lunch period wound down in the suburban Omaha school’s buzzing halls, the meaning of those words became clear.

Butler returned to Kaspar’s office, this time brandishing a handgun. He shot the 58-year-old administrator, mortally wounding her, then fired on Principal Curtis Case.

Later police discovered Robert Butler’s father is detective of Omaha Police Department which add insult to injury.
