Several students at a public high school in Seattle said they were threatened on campus by two people with an AR-15.
A parent of one of the students at Ingraham High School in North Seattle who wished to remain anonymous told KOMO News that the incident occurred Monday in one of the school's parking lots. "You should flip out. You should be outraged. You should be pissed out of your brain."
According to the parent, his son saw a girl in the passenger seat of a car which drove onto campus, who loaded a magazine into an AR-15. He added that the girl and a male driver were yelling at four students coming back from lunch.
His son said that the girl passed the gun to the driver who then pointed it at the students who then threatened the kids and said he was going to kill them.
Another parent told The Post Millennial that the parents of some of the students who were threatened were clueless about the whole incident until Ingraham's principal sent out a letter to families almost 24 hours after the incident occurred, after multiple parents reached out to ask what happened. The letter read:
"An incident occurred yesterday at Ingraham High School that caused concern that I want to share with you.
"Around 2:45 PM, students reported interacting with two people in a vehicle on the periphery of Ingraham property. The students also reported seeing a weapon, believed to be a firearm. The driver then briefly drove into the visitor parking lot on the west side of campus and then turned into the student parking lot. Neither of the occupants are believed to be Ingraham students.
"As soon as administration learned of the situation, we alerted the district’s Safety & Security team, and we called 9-1-1. The incident is now under investigation by the Seattle Police Department.
"Thank you to our students for reporting this matter. We will continue to work to resolve this as the safety of our students, staff and school community is our top priority. We have been, and will continue to be, a school community where everyone feels safe, respected, and engaged."
It was signed by Principal Martin Floe.
However, according to students and parents, the principal's letter left out some key details about what happened. Parents told The Post Millennial that the vehicle returned a second time and that the school was never put on lockdown.
Parents were quick to point out that the school had to call 911 because there were no officers on campus. Following the death of George Floyd, Seattle Public Schools banned police from campuses who had previously served as "school resource officers" to guard the students.
Erika Nagy, a parent at Ingraham, told The Post Millennial that "Seattle Public Schools has become less and less about education and more about what's the daily 'popular' political view. The same taxpayer funded 'for the people' institution that banned police because of false BLM narratives, had to call the police after armed trespassers entered school property at least twice."
Nagy added, "Seattle public schools prioritizes a socialist narrative over the education and public safety of our children."
Ingraham officials did not return The Post Millennial's request for comments.
Seattle police told KOMO News they responded to an incident at the high school for a "dispute between two groups of juveniles" and that the driver that showed the weapon eventually left the scene.
Seattle Public Schools has been dealing with the fallout of their choice to ban officers from schools since the decision was made. At the Broadview-Thompson K-8 school, a violent homeless encampment has been allowed to remain on the grounds by the school board for a year and a half.
Crime has skyrocketed in the area. The school has been forced to go on lockdown multiple times including when an unknown individual entered the building and when spotted a firearm in the encampment.
Broadview- Thompson was forced to hire private security because of the district’s decision to ban police.
Enrollment has plummeted at the school. Seattle Public Schools is also seeing a drastic decrease in enrollment as parents pull their kids because of radical curriculum being taught, sub-standard education, lack of safety on campus, people fleeing the city, opposition to mask mandates and more.
An Ingraham parent told KOMO, "Hearing that kids are on the property with guns, I want to move my kid away from this region as quickly as possible."
