DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- The Hillside High School principal addressed the gun violence that impacted the community on Friday in an interview with ABC11.
Dr. William Logan spoke about how he plans to lead the school during this difficult time and ways to keep students safe and out of trouble.
"Hard decisions are going to have to be made about how we move forward. The reality is some kids can be saved, some students are going to probably have to be incarcerated. Hard decisions are going to have to be made," he said.
It comes after a shooting took the life of one student, another student was also shot on Wednesday.
Law enforcement searched a wooded area by the campus Thursday, but said nothing was found that was connected to the shooting of the two students on American Tobacco Trail.
At the school board's work session last night, members expressed their frustration with the violence.
"We have work to do. Our students deserve it, our families deserve it and our educations deserve it. We need action, we needed it yesterday," said Bettina Umstead who is chair of Durham Public Schools.
Durham police tell us they do not believe the shooting was random.
They have not made an arrest and aren't releasing the names of the two students shot.
