In reversal, Oxford schools hire firm to investigate deadly mass shooting

 The Oxford Community School Board reversed its course by launching an independent review into last November’s deadly shooting at Oxford High School.

The announcement comes after the board heard the community’s frustration over the district’s original decision to hold off on a review until all litigation related to the shooting was resolved.

“We understand that waiting for the civil and criminal trials to end first does not serve the community well,” said a the school board member. “We can’t wait any longer to get an independent understanding of what happened that day.”

The Oxford School Board on Tuesday, May 17, voted to hire an outside firm to dig deeper into the Nov. 30, 2021 shooting that left four students dead and seven others injured.
