SOT, Ayana Jones, student: "So I found out about the stabbing when I was in class and my friend had leaned over to me and said: 'Oh my gosh, there is a stabbing and its in our area.' So not being from here, living somewhere else but coming here for school I just felt really scared and even it is on such an important day, on a very historical day such as 9/11, so I was really afraid and really scared to as what's going on. So that was my first reaction was just to like to grab my phone to get more familiar with what's going on, do I need to be concerned in anyway."
