Apologizing to the camera for not seeing her kids since the incident, Acuna hugged her son and quickly returned to her report. She explained that her son was safe and was the first to alert her to the shooting. Acuna’s niece, who also attends East High School, was texting her mother during the lockdown. The shooter, a 17-year-old college student, fled the scene and is still at large.
