Local woman's grandson inside Florida school shooting

Just two days ago a high school shooting in Florida rocked our nation. One woman in the Ohio Valley has a grandson who’s a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and was inside the building when Nikolas Cruz began to shoot.

Carolyn Mox lives in our area and says her grandson, Tyler, and his friends were walking down the hall before they heard shooting.

At first they didn’t believe it was a gun, but they saw somebody walking towards them and ran into a nearby, vacant classroom and barricaded themselves inside until SWAT saved them.

She says this was a nerve-wracking experience.

“”Terrible, terrible thing, I just can’t believe this is what we’ve come to,” said Mox. “A 15-year-old boy who has to step over dead bodies. I don’t know what’s ever going to change, but something has to be done.”

Mox also has a granddaughter who goes to the school, but was in a different building at the time of the shooting.
