Longstreath — a grandmother of school-aged children
— lives near West Liberty, where there was a shooting in January 2017 that injured a student. Today’s events called that to mind.
“It just makes you kind of scared because you know, it’s a school, and you feel the same way whether it’s in my town or someone else’s town. ... you send your kid, like I said, to go get an education, and they’re supposed to be safe there and these kinds of things are happening, you don’t even want to send your kids to school,” she said.

But Longstreath said a shooting is something that can happen any time, any where.
“You can’t be afraid or you’ll never leave your house.”
