Vidor High School drills for shooter scenario

By George Garza

Shots were heard in the hallways of the Vidor High School on Monday afternoon. Vidor I.S.D Police Department Officers and City of Vidor Police Department Officers fired blanks that sounded like the real thing in the 600 and 100 hallways of the Vidor High School building to simulate a shooter/intruder scenario where a person who has gained entry into school buildings begins firing randomly.

After a number of shots were heard being fired in several different hallways and then the sound of the Vidor High School public address system made a tone and the voice of Vidor High School Principal James McDowell said, “ We are under a lockdown for an active shooter drill. This is only a drill. Teachers and staff should engage their lockdown procedures. Again, this is only a drill.”

The data from 2016 from that same time frame shows 5,083 new voters registered to vote, and that was in a Presidential Election year. I really look to surpass that this year.”
