Sexton Students React to Shooting

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - As students returned to class today at Lansing Sexton High School, many say they can't help but feel a bit on edge about the shooting that hospitalized four of their peers Tuesday.

"I was shocked, like, you would never think that would happen in front of the school like that," said senior Tyrone Evans.

Evans says with the amount of police he sees patrolling nearby the school on a regular basis, he's surprised the shooting happened just a block away from school grounds. Evans says being back today does concern him.

"I am kind of scared because my brothers do go here and it's kind of making me nervous that this is happening at the school and it makes me worry about them a lot more," said Evans.

Antoinettte Lewis, a Sexton senior, says she feels safe returning to school, especially with the added police and security.

"I think it's good to have more security right now since that just happened. It makes people feel better protected," said Lewis.

Rene Wall, parent of a Sexton student, says she was hesitant to even bring her daughter back to school this morning.

"They need to do something about these guns," said Wall, "It's mostly these kids under twenty one that have guns these days and they need to do soemthing about it. They really do, it's getting out of hands."
