  • All I've seen is that it was outside the school, one shot and they arrested a shooter. Then, they backtracked on the "outside" of the school, saying it hadn't been confirmed......

    "Confirming" prior to publication seems to be a lost art.

  • I saw a twitter posted to local news that said the office called the police saying he wanted to talk to TV, but that sounds like he was inside - it was the same time I saw the "apprehended outside".

  • It's kind of sad the first I hear do of this was from a UK message board, not even worth a news break on tv.

    Here's the latest update. Suspect has been arrested & no students were injured. Thank God! It looks like the new safety measures A.L.I.C.E. for the schools is working. What a way to start a new school year. :(
