This was five blocks from my nephew's school.

A distraught father described as suicidal and threatening a “bloodbath” was shot by police after holding his 20-month-old son hostage Friday.

The toddler is OK.

The father’s wound is considered non life-threatening.

The child will be cared for by family members.

We didn't find out about it till I got the kid home. His mom asked him if there'd been a lockdown at his school today, and explained what that was. When he asked why she told us about the hostage situation. "Your mom's saying she was worried about you," I told him.

"Lockdowns" "Hostage situations"...these are problems we didn't have, when I was in school.
