MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The morning after a shooting inside the gym of Montgomery’s Robert E. Lee High School, police and city officials say four people have been arrested.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange joined Police Chief Ernest Finely and the two confirmed Wednesday morning to WSFA 12 News the individuals taken into custody range in age from 14-years-old to 18-years-old.
Finley says three of the suspects in custody will be charged with making terroristic threats and possession of a weapon on school property for having guns on campus. Video surveillance showed teens inside the school with guns in their pockets.
Strange says the suspect initially taken into custody Tuesday was not the shooter but is one of the suspects being charged for having a gun on school campus.
The shooting suspect, who has not been identified, is also in custody and will be charged with attempted murder, Finley added.
