Detroit Schools Bulk up Security

City officers blanket schools following two shootings at or near schools


In the Southeastern High incident, Jeremy Banks, 18, of Detroit was arraigned Wednesday on nine counts of attempted murder and felony firearm. His bond was set at $500,000.

Before this week, the last shooting in a Detroit school was January 2004, when a 19-year-old man entered Northern High School with a gun and shot a teenager six times in the leg, said Charles Mitchell, the head of security for Detroit Public Schools. The shooter was a student at another Detroit school.
