"It's certainly shocking to me that one of the staff members pulled out a gun in a classroom and fired it", Bartoo said. On his way to take shelter in a classroom, Wesley filmed a video of students running frantically through the hallways.

In videos shared by students on social media, you can see them evacuating the building in a controlled manner for the most part, however - a testament to the prompt and professional response from school officials. He was taken into custody about 30 to 45 minutes later, Frazier told reporters.
