Armed guards expected at Winston-Salem school

Posted: Updated:
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -

Students at Carver High School in Winston-Salem will find armed guards waiting for them at school tomorrow.

The high school played host to the most recent school shooting when an 18-year-old student shot a 15-year-old classmate.

The victim is out of the hospital and recovering.

The suspect Christopher Richardson is in jail facing assault charges.

Carver High School Principal Ronald Travis said his school is safe and the armed guards are not needed.

He says the shooting was an isolated problem between two students.

Forsyth County Schools Superintendent Dr. Beverly Emory, former Pitt County Superintendent, says this was an act that could have happened anywhere.

"Carver is a safe school, that's our point this morning. This incident could have happened anywhere. Not just in school, it could have happened anywhere in a community. When two folks don't have their dispute worked out, they're going to work it out somewhere. Unfortunately that happened on this campus," said Emory.

Carver's Friday football game was postponed until Monday. Several armed guards will be there as well.
