Fremont High School parents are still left with questions after a 14-year-old brought a BB gun to the high school Thursday.

Angela Kinkead has two children who attend Fremont High School. And she says her daughter texted her about the lockdown. She said without that text she would have had no idea what was going on. "I didn't get anything until I got home and after hearing from the kids the school was on lockdown," she said.

Her son, Wesley Boone was in the last classroom to come out of the building around 6:30. "Honestly everyone else was scared and I just wanted to get out and run, run the hallways," he said.

Student, Abagayle Holtz, said she was scared and couldn't believe something like this was happening at her school. "This is Fremont who in their right mind would do this," she said.

Superintendent of Fremont Public School, Mark Shepard said two alerts were sent out to parents during the two hour lockdown. "There were actually two alerts that we sent out. The first one we prepared fairly soon, and worked with the police department and once they take over the building they truly take over and that includes communication," he said.

Shepard said he understands the parents concerns and he plans to use this incident as a learning experience. He said the importat thing to remember is everyone involved is safe and no one was hurt.
