An arrest report for Jessie Rios, the 18-year-old accused of a shooting outside Von Tobel Middle School, states violence between two rival gangs at Sunrise Mountain High School spilled into surrounding communities.

Lawmakers at a hearing on Thursday discussed how to stop school violence like the recent incident.

AB 285 is a piece of legislation aimed to make it easier to expel students.

“I think there’s a difference between individuals, let’s just say, are gang motivated versus individuals that have anger issues. Post-traumatic stress,” Dr. Noris Dupree, a school psychologist, told members of the Senate Education Committee.
