The following message has been sent to families of students at G.W. Carver Elementary about an incident that happened near the school today (Friday, March 2nd):

Today about 2:10 an incident in the community around Carver Elementary School caused the school to be put on lockdown. In an off campus incident, shots were fired in the neighborhood. The Carver School administration and staff were amazing in a very difficult situation. Children who were outside were brought into the building and those inside, as well as those coming inside, were locked down in their classrooms quickly. 

The School Resource Officer was on scene at the time, and additional Kannapolis Police Department officers arrived on the scene quickly after. They now have the person(s) in custody. 

At Carver all students were checked on multiple times and extra staff members were brought in to assist. Kannapolis City Schools will have extra staff on duty at Carver next week to assist any student or staff needing help in dealing with the situation.
