School board members across the nation are buzzing about a Tuesday night shooting in Panama City, Florida. A husband complained about his wife being fired and began shooting. After exchanging gunfire with a security guard, the man killed himself.
Joplin's school board president says it is something that could happen here and the incident is driving discussion.
"They did have a security guard, where we don't have anybody at school during our school board meeting," says Randy Steele, the Joplin School Board President. "We had never thought about it. It's never been an issue. Now look at it. Now think, what do you need to do? Should we take precautions and I'm sure that will be a topic of discussion in the very near future."
Steele says the board could consider a scheduling shift so that a school resource officer is available during evening board meetings.
