Several young students at Vestervang School in the Jutland town of Viborg were able to provide witness accounts of a man they say shot an airsoft pistol toward the school building today, reports Viborg Folkeblad newspaper.
The incident is the second in two weeks were shots were fired at the school from a local path that goes through the school grounds. On 17 October, a six-year-old at the school was shot in the knee and had to have the airsoft pellet surgically removed.
This time, however, several students got a good look at the man, according to officer John Andersen of Viborg Police.
‘The kids are only 6 to 9 years old, but they gave very detailed descriptions of the shooter,’ he said.
Andersen said the suspect is likely a thin, young man who today was wearing a black hooded-sweatshirt with a white logo on the front. The hood was pulled tightly around the man’s head, however, so the children could not clearly see his face.
The students added the suspect wore blue jeans, had a blue and yellow wristband and wore white sneakers.
School authorities said they were closely monitoring the grounds and advised students to take extra care when coming to and leaving the school.
