Lockdown

by Eric Mansfield

During a school shooting, a guidance counselor, history teacher, PTA president, senior class officer and football coach take cover together. While trying to stay quiet, most of the group believes they know which student must be shooting. But when that student enters the office to hide with them, the group is forced to back up their suspicions about the teen they think they know. Under constant fear of a gunman, maybe even hiding among them, the group must own not only own their prejudices but also the deep secrets each has connected to gun violence.
