On February 29, 2016 at Madison Jr./Sr. High School, SRO Kent Hall heard gun shots coming from the school cafeteria. Several students were lying on the floor and one student was sprinting out of the lunch room. Deputy Hall ran after the 14-year-old suspect who later surrendered in a wooded area near the school.

Hear from SRO Hall and the School Superintendent concerning what happened that day: What went right, what could have been done differently and valuable lessons learned from that event.
