In a message to the parents, the school wrote:
“Dear CCS Parents. I regret to inform you that there has been an emergency at the school. The children are safe. We will update you when we have more details. Please be in prayer.
Dear CCS Parents. We are saddened beyond words to inform you that a student brought a gun to school today and a student was shot. While a majority of the students were eating breakfast in designated locations, this student slipped away to show it off to a friend and it accidentally went off. The gun was retrieved and the student is in custody now. Parents who can, may pick their students up by noon today. Please be in prayer for the Ireland family whose daughter was shot. An emergency parent meeting will be held tomorrow at 6pm.”
