Police: All clear given at Princeton High School, report of active shooter is false



TONIGHT. I’M SHEREE PAOLELLO AND I MIKE DARDIS SEE HOW THE STORY EVOLVING NOT ONLY HERE BUT ALL ACROSS OHIO AND AMERICA. AT LEAST EIGHT DISTRICTS IN OHIO RECEIVING THESE FAKE CALLS, PROMPTING A POLICE RESPONSE. ALL OF THEM CLAIMING THERE WAS AN ACTIVE SHOOTER. AND WE HAVE LIVE TEAM COVERAGE FOR YOU OF THE FAKE CALL HERE IN OUR REGION. REACTION FROM PARENTS AND STUDENTS DURING THE CONFUSE UNIT PRINCETON HIGH SCHOOL. WE BEGIN WITH WLWT SCIENCE REPORTER KAREN JOHNSON WITH HOW ALL OF THIS STARTED TODAY. AND AGAIN, THE MASSIVE EMERGENCY RESPONSE. HI, KAREN. WELL, HEY AGAIN, GUYS. THIS ALL STARTED WITH A 911 CALL A PERSON ATTEMPTING TO BE INSIDE PRINCETON HIGH SCHOOL CALLED 911, SAYING THERE WERE A SHOOTING IN AN ENGLISH CLASS ROOM. NOW, HERE IS A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND, BUT TAKE A LISTEN. LISTEN TO A PORTION OF THIS CALL THAT CAME THROUGH ONE CLASSROOM. NEXT, HE OPENED FIRE ON THE STUDENTS AND STUDENTS THAT INJURED NEXT TO THE CLASSROOM. OKAY. WHEN YOU TRY TO BE, YOU KNOW, JUST QUICKLY LOCK THE DOOR, THEN WE HAVE TO KEEP THEM TO THE RIGHT. THE CALLER WAS VERY SPECIFIC SAYING THE SEC OF THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE IN A SECOND FLOOR ENGLISH CLASSROOM. HE EVEN GAVE THE DISPATCHER A DESCRIPTION SAYING THE SHOOTER WAS A WHITE GUY WEARING A RED SHIRT AND BODY ARMOR. THAT CALL SPARKED A HUGE RESPONSE FROM THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY AND OTHER FIRST RESPONDERS. AFTER EVERY ROOM IN THE HIGH SCHOOL WAS CHECKED AND STUDENTS WERE ACCOUNTED FOR, POLICE DETERMINED THERE WAS NO THREAT. AND THIS WAS A HOAX. IN THE MOMENT WHEN WE WERE IN THERE ACTUALLY CLEARING AND GOING ROOM TO ROOM, OBVIOUSLY IT CAUSES A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF PANIC, WHICH IS WHY WE’RE SO FRUSTRATED AND SO ANGRY AT THE PEOPLE WHO FEEL THAT THIS IS SOME LEVEL OF AMUSEMENT TO DO THIS. SO WE’RE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN TO HOLD SOMEBODY ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT BECAUSE IT LITERALLY TERRORIZED A LOT OF THESE KIDS HERE. AND RIGHT NOW, INVESTIGATORS ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT WHO MADE THIS CALL. AND ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE NOT CONFIRMED THIS IS CONNECTED TO OTHER SIMILAR CALLS THROUGHOUT THE STATE, THAT YOU MENTIONED EARLIER, I CAN TELL YOU I DID LISTEN TO A PHONE CALL FROM SPRINGFIELD POLICE THAT’S UP IN CLARK COUNTY. AND THE CALLER, THE SAME EXACT VOICE APPEARED TO BE THE SAME PERSON. AND HE ALSO GAVE SOME OF THE SAME DETAILS. FOR INSTANCE, THE SHOOTING IN A SECOND FLOOR ENGLISH CLASSROOM. HE THAT MISSED PHONE CALL. HE ALSO DID IT UP IN THE ONE IN CLARK COUNTY. SO IT DOES APPEAR THAT IT IS THE SAME PERSON IN AT LEAST TWO OF THE SITUATIONS THAT WE HAD HERE IN OHIO. REPORTING LIVE IN SHARON, BILL KARIN JOHNSON WLWT NEWS 5. KAREN, I’M WONDERING, WERE THERE SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS AT THE SCHOOL WHEN THIS CALL FIRST CAME IN? YEAH, I HAD A CHANCE. I SAW TO TALK TO THE LIEUTENANT WITH THE SHERIFF BILL POLICE DEPARTMENT. HE SAID SHARON, BILL HAS TWO SORROWS ON HAND HERE. HE SAYS THEY IMMEDIATELY BEGAN GOING CLASSROOM TO CLASSROOM. SO THEY GOT A HEAD START EVEN BEFORE THAT MASSIVE RESPONSE. THEY WERE IN THE BUILDING CHECKING CLASSROOMS TO SEE IF THIS CALL THERE’S ANY CREDIBILITY TO THIS CALL. SO THEY WERE THERE IMMEDIATELY, FROM WHAT I’M TOLD, CHECKING ON MAKING SURE EVERYONE WAS SAFE AND MAKING SURE THERE WAS NO KNOWN NOTHING TO THIS THREAT. YEAH. GOOD TO HEAR.
