Another fatal shooting unfolded in the early-morning hours on Tuesday, claiming the life of 60-year-old Ronald Felton. The latest shooting took place within blocks of three deadly shootings that occurred in October, and police believe they are related. Those cases remain unsolved.
During a lock-in, access to the campus is tightly controlled, officials said. Students can still be dropped off, but no outdoor activities will take place.
This is a developing story.
