Student shot non-critically near La Follette, H.S. on lockdown

September 26, 2018 12:30 PM

Dear Neighbors,

I've been informed by MPD that a La Follette student has been struck by a bullet near school grounds.

At this point, MPD does not believe that the person who fired the gun is actively targeting the school or other students. The high school is on lockdown at this time as a precaution.

The student was struck in the lower half of his body and has experienced non life-threatening injuries.

MPD is working to find the person who fired the gun and to further secure the school premises. They are working so fast they don't have a lot of time to update me, naturally, which is why I don't have more details for you at this time.

I know this is scary. MPD and our MMSD school staff know exactly what to do in a situation like this. Let's hold tight and we will know more very soon.

Alder, District 3
