'You are loved': Officer stands outside of Magruder High School on first day back since shooting
WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - An officer was seen standing outside Magruder High School with a heartfelt sign on the first day back after a shooting that left a 15-year-old student fighting for his life.
A heightened police presence was on display at the school in Montgomery County Tuesday morning.
One officer welcomed students back with a sign reading, "You are so loved!"
Authorities say 17-year-old Steven Alston Jr. was taken into custody about two hours after the shooting happened Friday afternoon in Rockville.
