At 10 minutes til 3 with kids still playing outside at the intermediate school there was a shooting across the street from the high school entrance. Every cop in Nottoway came running but NO ONE even bothered to notify the schools. It ended up being a domestic dispute. The shooter was caught within 15 minutes but in that time all they knew was there was an armed person on the loose. How were they to know that before they arrived on the scene the shooter didnt run to the school? The school should've been put on lock down until they were sure the shooter was nowhere around our children. Shame on Nottoway for not taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our children!!

The school system themselves should have also notified the parents that it was not within the compound of the school itself. But then again who knows with these people.

Nottoway county never informed the schools so how were they going to notify the parents? That was my whole gripe, the school system shoudve been notified and put on lockdown immediately til the shotter was in custoday.

No not really, I just have a big dog and I apologize if I offended you.I saw you had a MD address and figured you were just someone that did not live around here joining in on all the bashing of local people. We all know how things work, but if this thing was over in 15 Min's that's not very much time to notify anyone and I'm glad they concentrated on catching the shooter, but I guess it wasn't hard, from what I hear he never left the scene

No offence taken and this form needs more people like you who speak your mind on important issues without getting personal. I just get tired reading comments from people who just want run everybody down and blame everyone else for their problems and short comings.

They did catch the shooter but I remind you that the worst shooting in the history of a college took place just a little over one year ago. There was a lot more that could have been done in the Virginia Tech case. The police did respond quickly to the shooting but when people have children in a school they have natural concerns. It was very foolish of the shooter to have shot his girlfriend near a school. I believe the law has a recourse other than just charging him with attempted murder and use of a weapon in the commission of a crime. It has to do with being near a school zone. However that is left up to the CA. The only person to be cautious about is the shooter.

It only takes 30 seconds to pick up a phone and call the school. Thankfully it ended the way it did. In the 15 min it took them to get things under control a lot of kids could've been shot. There were kids still out at the playground!
