Gina Larkins, who has a daughter in eighth grade at the Jackson Memorial Middle School, said she was on her way to drop off her daughter who's in third grade when she saw police activity around the middle school.
“I received a phone call from the superintendent that the middle school and high school was on lockdown and all the elementary schools would be closed. I just pulled in waiting to hear further information," said Larkins.
Parents in the area were already on edge this week following the horrific mass shooting at a Florida school.
"I just want to get my daughter and hug her and hold her. I thought it would never happen here but obviously, that is not the case," said Larkins, who was emotional at the thought of what could've happened.
