According to the sheriff's office, investigators worked alongside the school's administration and school resource officer.

“If you hear or see something, please always say something.  Doing just that in this instance, may have saved lives," said Sheriff Joshua McLaughlin. "I would like to thank the great teamwork of our Investigators, the School Administration, and LCSO School Resource Officer, Brandon Baker.”
