Police questioning four people after shooting next to J.H. Rose High School

GREENVILLE, N.C.   – Four people are being questioned by Greenville police after a shooting next to J.H. Rose High School put it on lockdown this morning.

Police said it happened around 10:45 a.m. on the school’s practice field. That field is in the back of the high school along Marvin Jarmin Drive.

The victim is not a student, according to police, and has been taken to ECU Health Medical Center with a non-life-threatening injury.

The lockdown has since been lifted, but police say increased security will remain on campus as a precaution.

Police Chief Ted Sauls said the 18-year-old was actually shot next to Marvin Jarmin Drive.

“It is intolerable to have this type of activity. It’s intolerable to have it happen anywhere, much less adjacent to a school as we see here,” Sauls said. “The injuries that the victim sustained in this investigation do not appear to be life-threatening

Police say there is no ongoing threat at the school and there is no connection between the school and the shooting. Sauls said multiple shots were fired.

“Due to our resources and the resources of the community and of our supporters, there is not anywhere that you’ll move in this city that we don’t know about. There is not anywhere that you’ll go that we will not find you,” said the chief.

One person shot and killed near Oliver Citywide Academy

PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh police said that a student was shot and killed by another student right near the front steps of Oliver Citywide Academy on Wednesday morning.

Not long after, officers found a gun on the sidewalk.

One student is in custody and there’s no potential threat to others.

Police Commander Richard Ford said the shooting happened just before 7:30 a.m. as students made their way to school. They then received a shotspotter alert for at least 11 rounds fired.

Ford said the student was in critical condition at first but then pronounced dead at the hospital.

“It’s very frustrating,” Commander Ford said. “We worked really really hard. We worked with the schools. And we’re going to continue to do that. Obviously, anytime there’s a loss of life, it’s a tragic situation. I am very relieved to know there is no danger to the public.”

Students who were on the bus were driven to Manchester School to be reunited with their parents, or they were taken home.

Only a few students were inside the school at the time of the shooting, including Armani Turner’s son.

She said she was very concerned because she was not notified about the incident by the administration and she was praying her 13-year-old was OK.

“Once I did speak to him, I was relieved, but I’m still nervous because my son is pretty active in sports and stuff so I get to know a lot of my son’s friends,” she said. “I just want to make sure that it’s not someone he may know or that I may know of from people I went to school with because nobody wants to get that call.”

Turner added that she worries the violence will get worse.

“I just want this to stop happening so frequently,” Turner continued. “I just want parents to communicate with their kids. Know what’s going on, know what your kid is into. And get them help if they need help so this doesn’t keep reoccurring.”

School was ultimately canceled and the district will provide more information about classes this week.

Early last year, a student was shot and killed outside of the school.

Pittsburgh Public Schools released a statement:

“This morning during arrival, a Pittsburgh Oliver Student was shot. After being transported to the hospital, the student later died due to injuries he received in the shooting. Our thoughts and prayers are with the student’s family. Our schools are designed to be a safe place for teaching and learning. Today, that was not the case for a student who was on his way to school to get an education. Pittsburgh Oliver is currently closed, and all students have been transported to Pittsburgh Manchester for a safe reunification with their families. City and School Police are currently investigating the shooting. Out of respect for the student’s family, we will not be providing any further comment on this unfortunate matter.”

Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey also released a statement which you can read in full below.

“Pittsburgh, please join me in prayer for the family, friends, and the entire Oliver Citywide Academy community as they are once again mourning a young life taken by gunfire. I’m proud of the quick response by our Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, who were on the scene within minutes and were able to apprehend the suspect. Thank you for your continued work in making Pittsburgh safe.  

No child should ever have to fear going to school, and no parent should ever worry about their child never coming home. We are working with our Community Violence Intervention teams to provide help and support to students, and we will do all that we can to connect the family to support services.  

As a society, we have to reclaim our children, and we have to begin putting our children first. We have cultivated a culture of violence and death, celebrated guns, and glorified shooting. We have failed as a country to stop the proliferation of guns, and it is far too easy for a young person to get those guns and retaliate in the way our culture has glorified it. 

Pittsburgh, we can and must do better. We have to cultivate a new culture, create a new path forward for our kids, and we are committed to investing in our kids to provide them with hope for a better tomorrow and a future that doesn’t end with bullets and gunfire.  

If you want to be a part of our work to end violence in our city, join us. Call us. We are willing to work with everyone who wants to be a part of the solution.”
