School Shootings

The school's district superintendent was ousted from his post after the revelations about the warnings came to light.
After years of stalled progress -- and shootings -- laws designed to reduce gun violence finally have a chance.
“We will regret our absence on this day for the rest of our lives,” the parents said in a statement.
Pete Arredondo was fired in August after the school board found “systemic failures and egregiously poor decision making” in the response to a mass shooting.
“The family was all educators and said she was excited about doing the job,” said John Eley III of the Newport News City Council.
Police said the boy had a handgun in the classroom, and investigators were trying to figure out where he obtained it.
The lawsuit alleges officials failed to follow active shooter protocol when they waited more than an hour to confront the attacker inside a fourth-grade classroom.
"The energy in the room shifted suddenly. It was palpable. Some members of our group gasped. Others started crying."
Earlier the day of the shooting, a teacher had discovered a drawing with a gun pointing at the words: “The thoughts won’t stop. Help me.”
"I opened the pamphlet and saw two simple sketches of a naked, genderless child, labeled 'FRONT' and 'BACK.' I choked up as I realized what I was meant to do."
