Community activists push for safer schools in the wake of a recent school shooting. On Thursday two students were injured in a drive-by shooting outside Linden McKinley Stem Academy when school was let out for the day. Police since have been inside and outside the school to guarantee safety for the students and staff.
Community members are joining together to put an end to these senseless crimes.
“They called me, and was like, mamma, it’s been a shooting, they’re on lockdown. I had my truck on two wheels,” said Linden- McKinley mother, Tammie Jones.
Jones is a mother Quadarrious McDonald, who plays football for the school.
“You send them to school for an education, and then all of a sudden, your kids are calling you crying talking about, it’s a shooting,” said Jones.
