(ABC 6 News) -- It's all anyone was talking about at Austin High School Friday afternoon. Some reacting very quietly though , because there just aren't enough words for this heinous crime.

Officer Mark Walski says he's been to classes where speakers have discussed their experience with interviewing shooters and finding out what motivates them.

"If it doesn't meet that number they don't get the publicity that shooters want, they want that notoriety of having that number and who did the most and its unfortunate its that way."

"I hope it never happens here, said Mark Walski the Austin School Resource Officer.

Throughout most of the afternoon our team has made stops at several schools in the area. And each one said they've had parents calling in with concerns we're going to keep following this story as it develops.
