“It’s not anger, it’s not hatred, it’s an adrenaline rush that, you know, I’m about to do something. I spend most of my time in a room alone so I’m getting this rush, so that’s what I was feeling,” he told the local news outlet.

Bouche, a former student who dropped out in 2016, returned to Forest High School on Friday morning with the gun in a guitar case.

The teen was surprised he could simply waltz into the school bathroom, where he took out his weapon and put on a tactical vest and a pair of gloves.

By the time he stepped out of the bathroom, Bouche said he was overcome with a “disgusting feeling,” and fired the shotgun at the bottom of a locked classroom door before hearing someone scream.

Bouche, who said he “could’ve kept going,” threw down the gun and surrendered to a teacher.

Unaware that he wounded anyone, Bouche said, “I didn’t shoot anyone,” and apologized, adding, “It doesn’t matter anyway” as he was led from the school in handcuffs.

The shooting comes just two months after a gunman killed 17 people and wounded 17 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
