I think in the simplest terms, he knows that shooting a gun makes a bad guy go away and I think in the moment he saw the teacher as a bad guy.
I think he likely knows what death is but didnt have a strong connection between shooting and death.
I think he felt he needed to defend himself from SOMETHING, and in the moment, the teacher became a bad guy so the kid shot like all heroes in the zeitgeist do.
Again, I think the kid is a victim. But I also think it was done with some intention.
Where that intention came from and why, is a HUGE question
This began before he arrived at school... beyond "in the moment".
I don't think a 6 year old fully understands what it means to take another human life.
Thank you for replying to my question.
