College shooting and my baby is there :(
« on: April 13, 2015, 08:04:08 AM »
i stayed home from work sick today and let my daughter's friend take her to school.  They are now in 100% lockdown, a shooter has killed a teacher and has not been caught yet and I'm terrified :( I can't even go there cause they aren't letting anyone in or out and have not just the college but the whole road blocked.

OMG Carey how terrifying, saying a prayer for your daughter and everyone there.  Can you go somewhere close where other parents might be waiting too?
You will forever be my always.

It ended up on CNN, People.Com and several other national outlets so you may have heard about it. A 20 year old college student with white supremist tattoos carried in a 12 gauge shotgun and shot and killed the print shop teacher at the college.  He then fled and for HOURS many roads and businesses were closed. He was captured, SLEEPING ON THE BEACH in Daytona yesterday morning of all places.

that tells the story...and whats amazing is, had I not been home sick I would have dropped my daughter off at the college and she would have been in the library, where this occurred. They are all shook up quite a bit but she went to school ok this morning, but it definitely made for a few terrifying hours.

I don't want it to be his legacy that his death destroyed me.
I need to honour his life by rebuilding my life.

I was following the story on the news after you posted here.  I'm so glad your daughter is ok but what a terrifying ordeal! 
You will forever be my always.

OMG! So much hatred in the world. I fear for the future generations of our children. So glad your daughter is safe and it was over quickly.

oh it's nationwide news now, he's had his first court appearance where he confessed in an F-word peppered speech.  Extradited back here yesterday where he was removed from the courtroom for another hate filled outburst.  This guy is a piece of work. There was actually a bomb threat at the college today and once again, Katie had already been dropped off and they evacuated and closed the college :(
