School shooting Correction

A report appeared in the print edition of the Monroe Free Press for December 21, 2017, about a shooting incident at Carroll Jr. High School.

The school incident was reported as having occurred this week, but was a reprint from our historical archives of an incident that happened several years ago.

The item was not correctly categorized as historical and gave the impression that it was a current news event.

We apologize to the faculty, students, and staff of Carroll Jr. High for any inconvenience our error may have caused. It is always our intent to be accurate in our presentation of information and we will work harder to insure that this type of mistake does not happen again.
