The Investigation Into the Shooting Incident at Dennis Intermediate School Continues

Richmond – The investigation into the shooting incident that occurred yesterday morning at Dennis Intermediate School in Richmond remains ongoing. This is expected to be a lengthy investigation and no time frame can be placed on when additional information may be available for release.

With that thought in mind, it is reasonable to expect investigators have, or will be speaking with anyone who has knowledge of the deceased, as well as interviewing school staff, students and neighbors. 

Detectives and crime scene technicians released the school back to the Richmond School Corporation late this morning. Richmond Community School Superintendent Todd Terrill has announced they will be holding a press conference today at their office located at 300 Hub Etchison Way, at 2 pm. The Indiana State Police will not be participating in this press conference. For any information regarding the resumption of school activities at the Dennis Intermediate School, or other questions related to school activities, please refer to their web site at

It is important to emphasize that due to the result of advance notification of the potential for a violent act at the school, the school was able to initiate their lockdown procedure yesterday and police were able to have a rapid response, which undoubtedly prevented injury to students and faculty. This is all the information that will be released at this time.
