Attorney General Curtis Hill today released the following statement in response to the shooting at Noblesville West Middle School:
“The epidemic of violence sweeping across American schools has now come to Indiana. While we await additional information on the school incident in Noblesville this morning, we must brace ourselves for the reality that our schools and our children are under siege by an unspeakable wave of terror that is taking full advantage of our open and free society.
“School safety plans, resource officers, red flag laws and hardened targets are vital to the defense of our schools and our children.
“While we all join in prayer for the victims and their families, we must continue on the path of identifying the best and most comprehensive ways to protect our schools and prevent these tragedies.”
