C POLICE DETECTIVE BY TELEPHONE TED ARE YOU OUT THERE, GOOD MORNING TO YOU >> GOOD MORNING TO YOU >> Bill: SITUATION ON LOCKDOWN WITH THE POLICE DO NOW TO FIND THE SHOOTER? >> THESE POLICE OFFICERS ARE HIGHLY TRAINED FOR THESE KINDS OF UNFORTUNATE INCIDENTS

WHAT THEY ARE NOW DOING IS THEY ARE CANVASSING AND THEY ARE TALKING TO VARIOUS STUDENTS TO TRY AND GET A DESCRIPTION OF THE SHOOTER FROM WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TOLD, IT IS A PERSON OF ASIAN DESCENT DRESSED IN ALL BLACK WHO WAS SEEN RUNNING FROM THAT SCHOOL WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IS THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT ARE CANVASSING ALL OF THAT AREA OR SURROUNDING THAT SCHOOL TO TRY TO FIND THE PERPETRATOR OR PERPETRATORS >> Bill: HERE IS ANOTHER TO BE JUST A MOMENT AGO THE SHERIFF SAID THE FOLLOWING IF YOU LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ANYWHERE NEAR SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL LOCKER DOORS IN ALL CAPS, TED, AND STAY INSIDE

IF YOU SEE THE SUBJECT, A MALE IN THE BACKYARD WITH THEIR CLOTHING CALL 911 THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN ALL THE TIME TO SPEAK AT THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN ALL THE TIME THIS TELLS ME ONE OF TWO THINGS, THAT THEY HAVE THE SCHOOL ITSELF THAT IS IN LOCKDOWN AND SCHOOLS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA THAT THE SCHOOL WHERE THE LAST SHOOTING WAS SUPPOSED TO BE TAKEN PLACE, THAT SHOOTING, THAT PROPERTY IS UNDER CONTROL BUT WHAT IS NOT UNDER CONTROL IS THAT THEY HAVE NOT AT THIS STAGE GOTTEN THE PERPETRATOR WHAT THEY ARE NOW DOING IS TRYING TO NOT ONLY TO ALERT THE SCHOOL AREA BUT THE COMMUNITY AT LARGE

THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION WHEN IN FACT YOU HAVE A SHOOTER OR SHOOTERS THAT ARE STILL OUT THERE >> Bill: TED, CONSIDER THE ELEMENT OF TIME THE FIRST REPORT CAME IN AT 6:55 AM LOCAL TIME

THAT'S ABOUT AN HOUR AND 40 MINUTES AGO THAT'S WHEN THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE AND YOU'RE TRYING TO CATCH UP TO A MAN THAT IS TRYING TO GET AWAY BY THE WAY, TED, JUST SO THE VIEWERS KNOW THE HELICOPTER SHOT ON THE LEFT OF THE SCREEN IS OVER A NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THEY BELIEVE THE SHOOTER MAY HAVE GONE TO THEY HAVE MAY BE A CLUE OR A HINT AS TO THAT

>> AT THIS STAGE WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT IS LOOKING FOR IS THE EYES AND EARS OF THE COMMUNITY THAT IS GOING TO BE VERY SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE IF THE PERPETRATOR HAS NOW LEFT THE SCHOOL AND HE IS OUT THERE ON FREUD IN THE AREA THERE, THEY ARE CLEARLY ASKING CITIZENS FIRST OF ALL TO BE SAFE AND LOCK THEMSELVES INTO THEIR HOME BUT ALSO ACT AS EYES AND EARS AND IF THEY SEE SOMETHING TO SAY SOMETHING CALL IN RIGHT AWAY ONE OF THE CONCERNS HERE IS THAT THE SHOOTER MAY HAVE HAD A PLAN WHERE ONCE HE SHOT THESE KIDS ON THAT SCHOOL CAMPUS, IS TO HAVE GOTTEN AWAY FROM THERE AND HE MAY, I AM JUST SAYING IT MAY BECAUSE WE CERTAINLY DO NOT NOW

HE MAY HAVE HAD SOME VEHICLE OR SOMEWHERE IN THAT COMMUNITY THAT IS ALSO SOMETHING THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION >> Sandra: IS REALLY IMPORTANT HERE TED, A NOTE FROM THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT PUTTING A STATEMENT OUT IF YOU LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ANYWHERE NEAR SAUGUS HIGH SCHOOL AS YOU SAW THAT AERIAL SHOT FROM THE ABC AFFILIATE THERE, IT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE SCHOOL MEANING THAT THE SHOOTER WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT FAR IF YOU LIVE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD NEAR THE HIGH SCHOOL PLEASE LOCK YOUR DOORS THEY ARE USING CAPITAL LETTERS

STAY INSIDE IF YOU SEE A SUSPECT WEARING DARK CLOTHING IN BACKYARDS CALL 911 SITUATION ONGOING AND ACCORDING TO WHERE THEY ARE SHOOTING THIS IT CAN EASILY ZOOM BACK TO THE HIGH SCHOOL WE ARE TOLD SO HE HASN'T MADE IT FAR >> THE ONE THING ABOUT LAW ENFORCEMENT IS THEY WILL GET INTO THAT AREA, THESE ARE HIGHLY TRAINED INDIVIDUALS FOR THESE UNFORTUNATE INCIDENTS THEY WILL KNOW HOW TO CANVAS THAT AREA, THEY WILL PERHAPS DO WHAT WE FIND IS A GRID SEARCH OF THAT AREA

THEY ARE PROBABLY GOING TO USE HELICOPTERS, THEY ARE GOING TO USE DOGS, AND THEY ARE GOING TO USE SWAT TEAMS TO CANVAS THAT ENTIRE AREA

WHILE IT IS AN UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT, IT APPEARS AS THOUGH THE SCHOOL ITSELF IS UNDER CONTROL OF THE FIRST RESPONDERS BUT WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IS THEY ARE TRYING TO FIND OUT WHO AND WHERE THE SHOOTER IS AND THAT IT'S SIGNIFICANT AND IMPORTANT >> Bill: TED THANK YOU YOU MAY HAVE WALKED HOME IT MAY BE THAT SIMPLE WE ARE TOLD THE HELICOPTER SHOT HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE SHOOTER'S HOME
