FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): An incident earlier this week has brought back up questions about school safety.

A Northrop High School student has been removed from classes after stepping off a Fort Wayne Community Schools bus, pulling out a gun, and firing several shots into the air Monday evening.

Some might say if the school district had metal detectors, that student would’ve been caught before potentially putting other kids in danger.

FWCS spokeswoman Krista Stockman tells our Partners in News at ABC 21 it’s an ongoing debate:

“There’s a lot of debate about whether metal detectors are effective or not. We have secure entrances, we have video cameras in and around our buildings and in our buses, so there is that constant monitoring that is going on,” Stockman said.

In Monday’s case, nobody was hurt. There’s no word yet on if the student will face any charges or other disciplinary actions.
