CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland school system is taking a hard look at security following Wednesday's shootings at the SuccessTech Academy alternative school.
A plan being unveiled today by the head of the school system is designed to determine whether security needs to be tightened. It also is expected to examine how potential problems among students are identified.
Asa Coon, a 14-year-old student who had been suspended earlier in the week, entered the school carrying two guns -- all while 26 security cameras were keeping watch.
Students say metal detectors were used intermittently, but none was working the day Coon shot four people before killing himself.
School officials also want to know why a number of warning signs from Coon -- including threats made last week -- apparently were ignored.
