Once again we have a gun situation at a school. One kid is dead after a shooting at Bellaire High School in the Houston Metropolitan Area.
KHOU reported the following
HOUSTON — A 16-year-old student was killed Tuesday in a shooting at Bellaire High School. The victim’s teenage classmate was later arrested in connection with the incident.
The first 911 call came in about 4 p.m. The caller said one student was shot and the shooter ran from the scene.
According to sources, the victim was shot in the chest. He was taken to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead. …
Outside the high school, there were tears.
“I felt shock and then I felt mad,” Kalee Barrientos, a sophomore who knew both the victim and shooter, told KHOU 11 News. …
Before the final period of the day, some students said they heard gunfire in a classroom. A parent told KHOU 11 News her son was in a hallway steps away.
“He’s in shock,” she said. “He immediately walked up to the scene and immediately knew that, ‘these are my friends,’ and I don’t think he understood what he was seeing at first until reality set in.”
Barrientos was on her way to JROTC when she was told something happened between two members of the program, two students she considered friends.
Barrientos said everyone was told to go outside.
“I felt like bursting out in tears because of who did it and who died,” she said.
While Bellaire police searched the area and eventually found the shooter, neighbors showed KHOU 11 News texts from city hall that urged people to stay in their homes until authorities had more information.
When does it end? One hopes that sooner than later we will take gun regulations seriously/ Until then, our kids will continue dying in schools.
