Both the teachers and the students inside the classroom feared in the half hour of the chaos that their school was really being hit by a shooting massacre. At least six firing pops were heard by the school officials as per online reports.
The shooter is still out on the loose
The school shares its parking lot with the City Arts and reports suggest that several rounds of shots were fired towards a group of students who had gathered in the parking lot situated in the campus. As soon as the police arrived on the scene, the school was put into a lock-out and nobody was allowed to then leave or enter the school.
