1. Dad used to teach there.

When he taught there, it was a beautiful open 1960's type campus, with lots of landscaped walkways to small one and two story classroom buildings where the windowed rooms had access that was on the outside of the buildings.
Not a good place for protection from an active shooter.

2. I'm watching the live feed on that TV station right now.

It's not at all clear what is going on.

There was a brief interview with a young man who said these things happen all over the world. He's wrong, of course. These things happen almost entirely in this country. But maybe that's the real reason we can't get good gun laws. Too many here think these kinds of shootings are normal and happen everywhere.

3. Starting to look like a false alarm as reported on Q13




Real-time updates: Reports of gunfire at Highline College

10:18 a.m. PST: Kent police: At this time we have not located any injuries or indications of a shooting, but we are still treating it as one until we can confirm and complete our search.

10:08 a.m. PST: Per Highline College: Police are clearing each building, but people are to remain in the building until cleared to leave. For families wanting to come to campus, they should go the Lowe’s parking lot, which is on the southeast corner of 240th and Pacific Highway S., diagonally across from the Highline College campus. Lowe’s parking lot is the official reunification spot. There has still been no confirmation that gunshots were fired.

5. You are welcome. It seems that everybody's nerves are on edge after the Florida massacre

Don't blame them though. This was one huge police response, even had the Port Authority involved and shut down I5!
