A window was shattered at Concordia when one round struck that window.

Crews boarded up the shattered window on Tuesday night.

“I think it was very shocking to hear gunshots going on — so my immediate response was to,¬†you know, drop — but then also to make sure my students were OK because at that time it’s a very prime time where our students are coming in and out of the building,” Joelynett Mckee, center director for the Midtown Center said.

Concordia officials tell FOX6 News they’re using this incident to see how Concordia can partner with police to ensure an even safer environment for students and staff.
