caroler is high school. shot into the school it appears. not at the school, but it appears that they were shooting at an individual who was walking in front of the school. as i said, 29 minutes after dismissal. there are two bullets on the fence, and two bullets struck glass, hurricane proof glass, shattered the glass but did not penetrate the office. i said that we avoided a tragedy because inside of the school, there were educators, and in addition to that, there were 50 students on campus, participating in the extra-curricular activities. so it's shameful that the sanctity of a school has been violated again. this of course compounds our concern over the rash of shootings that have taken place over the last 12 months. over 60 shootings, over 20 kids shot and killed in miami. and today it appears that we have as close as one can get

absolutely unacceptable. we do not believe at this point that it was school related in any way. there was a car driving east in front of the school, attempting to shoot an individual who was walking past the school, heading west. there is some video that we are currently analyzing, and it appears that that individual at least is motioning as if he is returning fire toward the vehicle. again, four bullets lodged on school property. two on the fence, two hit actual glass on the administrative suite, and no injuries whatever. and in collaboration with the miami gardens police department, through very advanced technology called shot spotter, we did detect 8 shots that were fired. we don't know how many came from the car and how many may have been returned by an individual walking.
