Families distraught amid false rumor of Clute school shooting | News | #schoolshooting

CLUTE — A student found with an unloaded gun at Corsicana High School on Tuesday might have spurred a rumor about an active shooter at Clute Intermediate School, Brazosport ISD officials said.

Though the rumor was confirmed to be false, parents said they experienced heartache and prayed constantly while waiting to hear if their children were OK.
