Jonessia White, the mother of a kindergartner, said the school’s doors are normally locked.

“I took (my son) to school this morning and had to be buzzed in,” she said. “So I’m wondering how the guy got in the door.”

Jackie Zamora, 61, of Decatur, was at the Wal-Mart waiting and said her 6-year-old grandson was inside the school when the shooting was reported and she panicked for more than an hour because she hadn’t heard whether or not anyone had been injured.

She said the school has a set of double doors where visitors must be buzzed in and show identification to a camera to be allowed in.

“I don’t know how this could happen at this school,” Zamora said. “There’s so much security.”

School volunteer Deborah Haynes said she encountered the suspect without knowing it.

She stopped by the office at the end of her shift and saw a man talking to a secretary but she did not see a gun.

“I heard him say, ‘I’m not here to harm any staff or any parents or students. He said he wanted to speak to a police officer.”

“By the time I got to 2nd Avenue, I heard gunshots,” she said.

  1. Ms. Antoinette Tuff, a staff member at the school is a hero. She truly averted a blood bath by reasoning with the gunman, unfortunately the media has not acknowledged her as such.
