NORTH CAROLINA, USA — When we hear about school shootings, we often think: what went wrong?
But the situation at High Point University this week has us questioning, what went right? How was a mass school shooting prevented?
It all trickles down to 'see something, say something.'
That saying is more than just a saying, it's proven to have worked in the Triad two times in the past several months.
December 3rd and August 28th.
In December, a man was arrested for going into the Smith High School in Greensboro with a gun, and backpack full of bullets.
Three staff members saw him with the gun, and took him down.
Fast forward to the present, this week High Point Police arrested 19-year-old Paul Steber for plotting to shoot up High Point University, because students reported what they saw.
'See something, say something.'
It's not just a slogan. Evidently, it's saving lives.
