It is coming more often.  The gunshots that break the normal sounds of the school day.  That’s when Cotee River Elementary School Principal, Lou Ceretta places the school on a lockdown and brings all students inside, from recess and physical education classes.  No one knows who is firing the gun shots in the woods surrounding the school.  What is known is that they keep getting closer and coming more often.  For up-to-date news accounts of this story, photos and to post a comment, please access the links below:
