Two children, aged 11 and 13, have been taken into custody after opening fire on middle school students today in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Westside Middle School students were assembled outside after a fire alarm sounded. At least four young girls were killed in the shooting spree, and at least ten other people injured, including two teachers. Noah talks with Keith Merritt, a reporter with NPR member station KASU in Jonesboro about the day's events.
