Another School Shooting

Lake Worth, Florida

May 26, 2000

 

Let's Stop the violence!

School Shooting - Lake Worth Middle School, Florida.

The scene outside Lake Worth Middle School in Florida 

LAKE WORTH, Fla.  - A young student allegedly shot and killed a male teacher in front of a class-room full of children on Friday, just minutes before classes ended on the last day of the school year, school authorities said.

The incident was the latest act of violence in a U.S. school after a spate

 of mass school shootings in recent years.

"A male teacher was shot in the face and was killed by a student," said a spokesperson for the school district, Mabel Cardec.

She said the student pulled out a gun and shot the teacher in the face at Lake Worth Middle School north of West Palm Beach. It was not clear if he was a student in that class or entered the room from outside.

The student fled, but was caught on school grounds and detained.  Nobody else was hurt in the incident at the middle school, which teaches children aged from 11 to 15.

Cardec said the children were just waiting for the bell to ring at the end of classes when the shooting occurred at about 3.30 p.m.

“It’s time to stop acting like this is a backwater town and put the schools’ security in the hands of professionals,” attorney Bob Montgomery told The Palm Beach Post.    

The incident was bound to renew anxiety among parents and children in America, shocked by a series of mass shootings. The worst incident was in April last year in Littleton, Colorado, when two students rampaged through Columbine High School, killing 13 people before taking their own lives.

Police have now revealed their findings as they released tapes of the 911 call made when Lake Worth Middle School teacher Barry Grunow was fatally shot Friday by 13-year-old Nathaniel Brazill. The seventh-grade honor student, who was sent home from school for throwing water balloons in a hallway, allegedly returned later and fired one shot from a small gun, killing the 35-year-old teacher.    

One of the Early & Imminent Warning Signs that are starting to come out:

  • Florida police say two classmates claim the 13-year-old boy accused of killing his teacher showed them a gun days before the shooting.
