School Prepares for Students' Return After Shooting Death of Classmate

- LITTLE ROCK, AR - Administrators at McClellan High School in Little Rock are preparing for all their students but one to return to school Tuesday after the holiday.

Adrian Broadway, 15 and a freshman, was shot and killed early Saturday morning.

McClellan High School is facing this tragedy in more than one way. The school says every teen involved, there were seven in the car that Adrian was riding in when she was shot, are students at McClellan.

The halls at the school were sparse Monday as the Presidents Day holiday was reserved for parent teacher conferences.

Principal Henry Anderson says students will be back Tuesday. He says they have many things to consider as the school prepares to mourn with the students.

"So we've been fortunate with the Little Rock School District," Anderson explained. "They've provided for us an arsenal of counselors, mental health support personnel to just come in and spend time talking with our kids, just to let them know they have the support. And it's not just for kids. It's also for our faculty and staff members because she's a student that everybody knew."

Broadway was a freshman cheerleader. The squad gathered Monday night for dinner and to talk as they grieve through this process together.

While the school plans on welcoming students back Tuesday, Friday is Homecoming. Adrian was on the freshman homecoming court. The school plans on setting out one empty chair with a black sash and rose in honor of Adrian.
