Sheriffs investigates shooting in East River High School

East River High School Shooting – Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are investigating a shooting incident in the parking lot of East River High School on Monday afternoon.

According to Orange County Public Schools, all the students and staff are safe. A school district official said the girl’s basketball game against Olympia High School, previously scheduled for Monday at 7:30 p.m., was canceled. Furthermore, the movie night on the school’s football field has been postponed.

“Law enforcement and school administration immediately responded and are investigating,”

“Like any other parent, we get panicked. I get scared,” Mahmuda said. “I’m scared now because my (other child), the younger one, she’s in eighth grade. Next year, she will be in high school. I’m really, really scared, I’m considering homeschooling my children to prevent them from being involved in a school shooting, “Even my family back home, are actually commenting to me not to let her go physically into the high school because it happens so frequently.”
