Newport News

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Students at Heritage High School were allowed to return to campus Wednesday for the first time since a shooting injured two people.

On Monday, police say a 15-year old student shot two other 17-year-old students just before noon. Staff and students evacuated the school at the time. Many left without their school and personal items.

According to a tweet sent out by the school, students were allowed to show up between the hours of 8 to 11 a.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. There were also counselors on-site at the school Wednesday.

On Wednesday, students were allowed back into the building to pick up their belongings and technology.

This, as the school district says plans are being made for students to learn virtually.

Classes for both Heritage and Huntington Middle School, which holds some classes for its students at Heritage, were both canceled after the shooting.
