Security Buildup Not Permanent Yet at Baltimore High School

Principal is trying to decide whether to make permanent temporary security measures at the school after a shooting on the first day of class


Perry Hall High School will maintain a heightened police presence until its principal determines that the campus is ready to return to normal, in the aftermath of a cafeteria shooting in which one student critically injured another on the first day of school.

Two days after the incident, schools spokesman Charles Herndon said county officials are "debriefing and evaluating" but have not decided on whether to permanently beef up security or student counseling.
