"my throat swells
sweating and you start thinking how bad is it?" butler county sheriff richard jones recounted his thoughts after hearing there had been a shooting inside of the madison jr/sr high school. "we've been training for these response to these schools shootings sadly to say for years. the school has been training. how to respond to these shooting." "i think the way the school and the officers handle it has been amazing. we've all been well informed, quickly informed." authorities says when the call went out, multiple units responded to the scene. a perimeter was set up around the school to contain james austin hancock, the shooter. a k-9 was then able to track him down in a nearby wooded area. it was during that time authorities also say the school resource officer tended to the victims. a swept of the school was done to make sure another shooter wasn't on the loose and to also check for other victims. one student who was injured in the
shooting initially ran and hid. "when you hear there's an active shooter in the schools, the schools close down they have certain alarm systems that go off, the teachers know what to do, how they train, students actually know what to do and it's like fire drills." student we spoke to were obvious shaken up by the ordeal. but instead of flipping pages of books they paid close attention to these directions. "my teacher said everyone hide, and don't make any noise so that's exactly what i did. i sat under a little table" "they told us that we're in lock down three and we had to go hide in a room so we did that and i was really sacred and crying" the school also put out facebook posting keeps parents informed through the ordeal along with two robo calls..and website updates. gpx in face book post, posted by madison local schools. it reads. we would first like to update everyone on the crisis situation in
our district today by thanking our students and staff for immediately reacting to the event in exactly the way we have practiced and planned. additionally thank you to the parents and community for your patience and cooperation during a stressful time. i spoke with authorities earlier on the phone who tell the execution of this training went very well. live in madison township frankie jupiter fox19 now. new video.. also coming in.. cell phone video - posted to youtube... shows parents nearby... as the school was on lockdown - reacting to news that their children were safe... god are you ok? yes. levi? they won't let him. levi? are you on the phone. are you ok? they got the shooter. they did. praise god. school is closed tomorrow after

missing since january 31st - her father's birthday. her father told me she hadn't been shot or stabbed... and is waiting to learn more from investigators. while her family mourns... i'm told this is the ending they knew was coming. "there ain't been a day go by that we haven't thought about her. ain't been a day gone by that my wife hasn't cried. what broke my heart the most was her youngest child would say to me every morning when i go to work, 'papaw, you going to bring my mommy home today?' it broke my heart." family members have told us that she hadn't been seen since being dropped off at the california market on the aa highway last month. dan turner tells me that people were out searching for his daughter as they have done day after day. he said yesterday they called it quits for the day... only 75 feet away from where she was found last night.

we talked with the sheriff just a few hours ago who laid out all the charges 14 year-old james austin hancock is facing. here's how it breaks down. right now, 2 counts attempted murder, 2 counts felonious assault, inducing panic and making terroristic threats. the sheriff tells me all of those charges are juvenile counts, but he says that could change. investigators will be meeting with prosecutors to decide if hancock should be tried as an adult. now, in the meantime....he is expected to make his first court appearance tomorrow morning in juvenile court. we will be there and will keep you posted on what happens. rl mo fox19 now. hancock currently faces those charges as an adult, but our legal expert, mike allen believes he could be bound over to adult court. you know there is really no precedent locally for this that i know of, it's a really tough call because apparently the young man has no prior records, no contact with the juvenile court system. so normally
weigh that against the sheer seriousness of the act i think there is a good chance that they might. there's already an outpouring of support for the victims.. restauranteur jeff ruby... says he is also extending an evening at his steakhouse carlo and johnny for dinner for the victims and their families as soon as the kids recover. again this is a story that will keep developing with new information coming out over the coming days. we'll be sure to bring you all the latest details, developments and more along the way. you can follow along on air, online and on the fox19 now mobile app.
you're in an accident, your car is totaled. it may end up at a salvage yard, where it's sold for scrap. but if you didn't clean out your glove box... you could be at risk for identity theft. fox19 now investigates went undercover at a local junkyard yard and found personal documents littered in wrecks. reporter jessica brown has the story. within minutes, our cameras found all kinds of personal documents... receipts, a debit card, even records with social security numbers. everything a potential i-d thief would need to ruin your financial life. "we got it..." a job application with details crooks would love to get their hands on. a social security number, birth date, contact information. now, no one would willingly leave this lying around but we found it here...at a cincinnati salvage yard.... on the floor board of a wrecked car. a fox19 now producer and photographer told the salvage yard employee they wanted to look around and got right onto the
lot...acres of scrapped vehicles. there were no signs or verbal instructions warning not to take personal items from vehicles. they walked around, unsupervised and rummaged through dozens of cars. they found a debit card, a child's medical records...even bottles of medication, filled with pills. damon eberle's name and address were right there on the bottles... "i was in a car accident in december..." we tracked down the new richmond man and showed him video of what we'd found. he was stunned his personal belongings had been left out. eberle said after the crash, his insurance company settled and he'd assumed everything in the car had been removed and destroyed. "i would have never thought of that, somebody, they just go in there to get parts for their car. i don't think they'd go in there to ransack your car and get your personal information." "bessler's u-pull
dollars for entry to the lot. customers can then look for parts on hundreds of scrapped vehicles. bessler's general manager said our discovery didn't surprise him. but unlike the lot where we found all that personal information, bessler's has a strict policy -- employees remove all items from vehicles and shred all documents. "stuff with names, socials, everything again is disposed of, nothing goes to the field with the vehicle so that a customer can't steal an identity." "it's something i hadn't heard about before." fox 19 now legal analyst mike allen said he couldn't identify any current law in the tri-state that addresses this issue. "i cannot locate any regulation or statute that required them to pull anyone's personal papers out of the vehicle." allen said the only way to protect yourself from this is to be pro-active. make sure you never leave any records with sensitive information in your car.
and that's exactly what eberle plans to do from now on. "i feel violated because i left it in there for somebody to take." "if you are are a victim of identity theft, the ohio attorney general's office has a special unit dedicated to helping consumers. we have more information on our website...fox-19- now-dot-com. jessica brown, fox19 now." we reached out to the owner of the salvage yard where we found all those personal records. he told us they don't have a policy about removing paperwork from vehicles, but said it would be impossible to police. breaking news now in covington. a transformer has blown leaving more than 2-thousand people without power. we're told the transformer is located at ace and russell. the areas affected are north and west of ace ave. it's also knocked out power to some of the lights on the roebling bridge. no word when power will be restored. you decide 2016 presidential candidates are making their final pitches to voters ahead of
