Additional security and police were in place at the school to ensure the student safety, Goral says.

Chesapeake Police Spokesperson Kelly O’Sullivan, an 18-year-old and a juvenille, who do not attend Oscar Smith, walked into the school with students who were arriving for the day.  The two then started a fight inside of the school.
