HCSO Sheriff talks about school safety concerns voiced by parents
The student initially charged in connection with a college shooting near Houston is now out of jail. Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said yesterday that he won't apologize to Carlton Berry, saying "I owe him no apology. This is still an investigation that is still in progress."
One of the victims shot at Lone Star College last week identified Berry as the shooter at the scene. Trey Foster was arrested near Dallas a couple of days later and is now charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the shooting. Authorities allege he was with Berry on campus last Tuesday and got into an argument with a man. Foster then allegedly opened fire, injuring Berry, the man involved in the argument and a maintenance worker.
In this video, Garcia summed up attendees' concerns and interests parents voiced at a town hall meeting held January 24th about keeping schools safe. People voiced their need for more having more deputies on the streets. Also, the need for having a safety plan that works the same way across the county. Lastly, people expressed their interest in being "a part of the solution" so he is inviting them to be a part of the Citizens Police Academy.
