COLUMBUS, Ohio — Officials say classes won’t be held Monday at a central Ohio school where a gun was fired last week.
Columbus city schools canceled classes for students at Columbus Scioto 6-12, a public school for special needs and emotionally disturbed students.
Schools spokesman Scott Varner says teachers and staff will report to work and that grief counselors will be on hand.
Eighteen-year-old Adan Abdullahi (ah-DAHN’ ab-duh’-LA’-hee) was arrested after police say he fired three shots inside the school Friday. Police say a staff member intervened and calmed Abdullahi until officers arrived.
Abdullahi has been charged with improperly discharging a firearm in a school safety zone. He appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court on Saturday where a judge set a $950,000 bond and assigned a public defender to represent him.
