Community Comes Out To Support Sexton

Students returning to Lansing's Sexton High School got an extra special welcome today.

Some two dozen people, including neighbors and graduates from the school, greeted students with signs of support.

That's one day after someone shot four of their classmates. Two remain in the hospital and two have already been released. All of them will survive.

The supporters, prompted by a Facebook page, made the signs and wore red - Sexton's color - to show their support.

Superintendent Yvonne Caamal Canul says she's grateful for their efforts.

"The neighborhood was great!" she said. "The people came out, they helped us, they talked to the kids who were hit. And they were very, very supportive and everyone was like "We just can't believe this happened."
