Made the decision to evacuate that whole way so they immediately had all the teach all the students and teachers. That war in adjoining classrooms of fact we doubt that area is secured that area first. And after. Period Tom followed up thirty or 45 minutes they were able to get this. Surrender.

They're I don't know because I don't know what this teacher schedule was. Previous to this incident. But I do know that. Pretty much from the Genesis of the incidents students were not in the classroom and in fact.
