Classes Resume at McKinley School

Posted: Updated:

   It's expected to be back to school as normal this morning at one east Erie elementary school after some scary moments for parents on Friday. School officials say counselors will be available for students at McKinley Elementary School today, on the heels of a shooting outside the school that still has one woman in the hospital this morning. It all happened last Friday morning. Erie Police say Erie man Derrick Rowry, 46, shot McKinley teachers-aide Tamara Logan on a sidewalk outside the school. Police say the two know each other, but they aren't saying anything more about their relationship. They say they two encountered each other at a store not far from the school shortly before the shooting. Police say Rowry followed her, then after a brief verbal encounter, he allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Logan several times in the head. Despite that, Logan was reportedly conscious and talking to police after it happened. A short time later, Rowry turned himself into police. School officials say they're taking steps to help students deal with what happened. According to Superintendent Dr. Jay Badams, "We will have counselors available for children as well as for staff. And certainly if any parents have concerns they can contact us to hook up with our student assistance program as well." Rowry is in the Erie County Prison this morning under a $500,000 bond. He's facing a charge of attempted murder. Watch 12News and SEE News for the latest on this story throughout the day.
