On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports,” visitor host Ana Cabrera and NBC News Correspondent Guad Venegas mentioned the foiled tried mass capturing at a Hebrew college in Memphis on Monday and famous that robust college security procedures, together with security procedures with the door, stopped a would-be mass capturing.
Cabrera stated, “Memphis police are calling it an unbelievably close call, a potential mass shooting in Memphis stopped only by a locked door. The suspect is now in critical condition after he was shot by police following a citywide manhunt. Police say he tried to force his way inside a Hebrew school and opened fire when he couldn’t get inside.”
Venegas added that “we know that he arrived at the school, and, as you mentioned, there was a safety procedure in place that kept the suspect from entering the campus. He then got in his pickup truck and drove away. The information that the school shared with authorities was essential for them to locate him minutes away from the school, where he was confronted by a police officer who then shot him, indicating that the suspect got out of his vehicle with a gun.”
