It's happened again. Another school shooting! This time at Inskip Elementary School. Two administrators have been shot. Here's what we know so far. The school let all the students out early for snow. Police say a male walked into central office at the elementary school and fired shots hitting Principal Elisa Luna and Assistant Principal Amy Brace with shots fired from a revolver. Police received a call at 12:49 and a suspect was apprehended at 1:03 near Merchants Road in a gold Camry. Police haven't charged him as of 2:54 Wednesday, February 10th, but we are expecting a perp walk any minute. Police did say the victims are expected to live. KPD says one is in surgery.
Knoxville had another school shooting August 21, 2008. Central High School student Ryan McDonald was killed. Fellow student Jamar Siler is awaiting trial. Thankfully no students were killed in the February 10, 2010 shooting today, but 2 teachers who have dedicated their LIVES to helping, teaching, mentoring students are lying in the hospital with gunshot wounds and may lose their lives. This is unacceptable. What can we do to STOP this atrocity. What are your thoughts?
