The school prevented anyone’s entrance or exit. And the cops were telling all the parents to leave the area. I was told they got the guys so I felt more at peace but then more rumors started rising around the situation and I didn’t know what to believe.”

-David Silva was at the middle school attending the Memorial High School’s Performing Arts Academy’s dance show when the shooting happened. He says, “Honestly, yesterday was something I hope no one ever has to experience or even worry about experiencing. I was seeing everything unfold on my phone as the show was going on and then it was interrupted so that everyone would know what was going on. I think that’s when it became real because it didn’t feel real…The audience was unaware of all the comotion the front of house staff was facing, everyone was calling and texting loved ones while crying. When the show was over and we had to leave the building, everything felt so strange. We were told to leave through Broadway for security reasons, but nothing felt safe.”
