Two weeks after the conclusion of a third-party investigation into the mass shooting at Huguenot High School's graduation ceremony, a Richmond Public Schools (RPS) board member says he wants his board to release the full report to the public.
On the night of June 6, seven people were shot as a crowd convened outside the Altria Theater in Richmond at the end of Huguenot High School's graduation ceremony. 18-year-old Huguenot student Shawn Jackson was killed, as well as his stepfather, Lorenzo Smith.
After an internal investigation in July resulted in six changes to the school district's policies being recommended, administrators commissioned an external investigation into the events that led to the shooting. In early November, RPS school board member Jonathan Young called the results of the report "as damning as a finding as possible."
8News spoke with Young ahead of a November 20th meeting, where he says he will present a motion to the board to release the full report from the report, which was conducted by Sands Anderson law firm.
