An Albuquerque student was killed after gunshots rang out from Washington Middle School on Friday Aug. 13. 

Law enforcement identified the victim as 13-year-old Bennie Hargrove, who was called a hero by Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina for standing up for a friend that was being bullied before being shot, on Friday. 

“We can only imagine the terror felt by families rushing to pick up their children, fearing the worst. And the senseless and violent death of a child in our protection is, indeed, the worst,” said Public Education Secretary Ryan Stewart and Secretary Designate Kurt Steinhaus in a joint statement on Friday. 

As communities around New Mexico mourn this tragedy, parents may wonder what schools are doing to keep their children safe from gun violence.
