Angela Herrera, a teacher at Hammond High School, said: ABC7 said she heard two students were involved in some sort of altercation.
“The panic is all the students hearing it, knowing that something is going on, that someone has a gun and the storms running down the hall and everything,” Herrera told ABC7 Chicago.
