High school prank turns into school shooting

Another school shooting happened last night according to the San Bernardino Sun newspaper in San Bernardino, California.
Students had been camping out at Redlands East Valley High School, 31000 E. Colton Ave., as part of a prank in the quad when a group of people came up and confronted them.
Despite the fact that 200 of the school’s about 2500 students were attending the camp out/ prank, the event was not sanctioned by the school.
“We would have had people there if it was a school-sanctioned event,” said Principal John Maloney to the Sun.
The county sheriff’s office received multiple calls about the shooting just after 10:30 p.m.
The campus was locked down as soon as possible for a full out search of the premises to take place.
As of Monday morning, no students have been reported to be injured.
Officials say that the shooter is not thought to be a student of the school. Rather the shooter is thought to be a disgruntled trespasser who was asked to leave by students.
At around midnight students were released from questioning to their parents.
No suspects have been brought in for questioning. The charges would relate more to the discharge of a firearm than the attempted shooting of a student.
This will be the 44th report of gun related violence at a school just this year. That statistic includes gun violence on college campuses.
The closest school shooting event to Indianapolis this year occurred in the parking lot of St. Mary School in Griffith, Indiana where a man allegedly fatally shot his wife.
