Police said that after arriving at the high school on Friday, Shallerhorn robbed a 39-year-old man sitting in a car in the parking lot, raised his shirt, brandished a gun, and demanded the victim̵
The victim gave the chain to Shallerhorn, who then tried to enter the school but was stopped because he did not wear a mask.
The police said that before Mitcham intervened and escorted Schallehorn into the haunt, there was a physical dispute with the school employee.
Shallerhorn allegedly shot the officer twice when he was about to leave. The police said he then put the gun on the ground and was detained.
