Two people shot, injured at a high school graduation ceremony at Show-Me Center in Missouri

Police are still investigating the circumstances regarding the shooting.


Two people were shot during the Cape Central High School graduation ceremony that took place on Sunday at the Show-Me Center on the campus of Southeastern Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

In a post on Facebook, SEMO said, "Police are on scene and the building is secured." It added, "Investigation ongoing. Avoid the area." 

According to WSILTV, both people were transported to the hospital and are being treated. 

Cape Girardeau Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Howard Benyon said in a post on Facebook, "During our graduation ceremony today at the Show-Me Center, an altercation occurred forcing us to stop the ceremony and evacuate the building." 

"Fortunately, no students or staff members were injured and thanks to the assistance of staff members at the Show-Me Center, we were able to get everyone out of the building safely." He continued, "We are thankful for the quick response a the Show-Me Center, and for Cape Police Department officers who responded to the call." 

Benyon added that the school would reschedule the ceremony, but at this time their main priority "is working with police to aid in their investigation of this situation." 

Police are still investigating the situation and this is a developing story.
