On November 8, 2005, a 14-year old student had been called into the principal’s office and was confronted by principal Gary Seale on whether the student was carring a firearm on school campus. The student allegedly pulled the .22-caliber handgun under a napkin and stated, “Yes, it’s real. I’ll show you. I never liked you anyways,” and proceeded to open fire on assistant principal Ken Bruce and Gary Seale and assistant principal Jim Pierce, who were present in
the room. Ken Bruce died of sustained critical injuries.
