Taft: School will have more security cameras, security guards following Jan. 10 shooting

Parents still confused abuot hit list issue

TAFT, Calif. - School leaders in Taft say students will soon find heightened security at the high school in the wake of a campus shooting.

But it wasn't enough to satisfy some parents, who were clearly upset that the accused shooter, Bryan Oliver, was back on campus in the first place, following threats and the alleged hit list from last year.

Emotions ran high Tuesday night at Taft Union High School, as parents spoke with administrators for the first time since the shooting on Jan. 10.

Superintendent William McDermott and the school board listened to concerns about bullying and why warning signs about alleged shooter Bryan Oliver were ignored.

McDermott said the school will install more security cameras and have more security guards on campus.

There was no timetable discussed as to when those changes will take place.
