DELKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - The Dekalb County Sheriff's office said it was actually a prank involving two 14-year-olds.
The sheriff said they shot someone they know with a B-B gun through a tent.
The victim was taken to the hospital with a shoulder injury.
Parents were surprised and confused this week when a suspect in a Labor Day shooting showed up at Garrett High School. They said their many questions went unanswered.
"Nobody is communicating with the parents out there in Garrett. We do not know what's going on because this privacy issue. The school can't tell you this because of hearsay they say were court ordered to let the student back in school. Everybody's got a story of their own." Brent Warfield said.
Parent Brent Warfield reached out to FOX 55 after a threat surfaced on social media this week in reference to that same student.
The superintendent released this statement to FOX 55:
"Student safety remains the top priority at Garrett-Keyser-Butler CSD. Immediate steps were taken and district protocol was followed," Superintendent Tonya Weaver said.
Parent Tina Wooldridge said parents need to trust officers and the school district to do the right thing.
"I think in these days there's a lot of fear and it's more important to focus on truth and supporting one another instead of giving into fear,"she said.
