Police had an increased presence in the area around the school Friday morning. Parents were emailed a letter Thursday night alerting them of the situation.
“None of my kids wanted to come to school this morning. All of them were scared. My kindergartner, it was like dropping her off on the first day of kindergarten, all over again. She was really clingy - she didn't want to go, but I told her it was safe,” said parent Rebecca Parker.
Ohio Wesleyan University also sent out an alert to students Thursday night after the shooting telling them to remain inside.
Officials said they are reviewing surveillance cameras in the area to try and determine the events that led to the shooting.
