On Monday, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, an officer-involved sh00ting occurred outside a Hebrew school in Memphis.

Officers from the Memphis Police Department were summoned to the scene just before 12:30 p.m. Monday at the Margolin Hebrew Academy-Feinstone Yeshiva of the South on South White Station Road, according to MPD Assistant Chief Don Crowe.

Crowe stated that an armed guy attempted to enter the school, and when he could not, he fired at the school.

“Thankfully, that school had a great safety procedure and process in place, and avoided anyone being harmed or injured at that scene,” he said. “We cannot thank the people from Hebrew Academy enough for their vigilance and ability to get information to us.”

School administrators could offer police a description of the individual and his vehicle. Police discovered the car, a maroon Ram pickup truck, and pulled him over.
