The incident comes a day after the US Department of Justice said in a press release that schools throughout the United States would receive $85.3 million from the US federal government in grants to fight school shootings and other violent incidents.

“By training faculty, students and first responders, and by improving school security measures, we can make schools and their communities safer”, US Attorney General William Barr said in the release.
According to the release, the money for the grants is also intended for police and other first responders who arrive at the scene of a school shooting or other violent events.

The Justice Department’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office, which has invested more than $14 billion to advance community policing since 1994, issued the safety grants, the release added.
