The shooting, which took place on Hudson Avenue on Sept. 11 around 8:45 p.m., resulted in the death of 12-year-old Camry McNight. Two others, 15-year-old Tyshawn Riggins and 13-year-old Dyquone Gamble were also injured in the incident.

Because the shooter is still at large, and all three students have ties to several schools in the district, Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard said the district will be on its guard throughout the city.
