and talk between classes.
None of those wounded knew the
assailant - all five were merely
walking between the buildings on
their way to classes.
"At this moment (we see) no
motive at all," said Capt. Rayl
Meggitt of the Pontiac police force
yesterday afternoon.
Meggitt said the weapon was aI
revolver, presumed to be .22 cali-
ber.
At the same time as the shoot-
ings, a scuffle broke out between
students. Dale Miller, 16, said he
was "jumped from behind" as he
walked from one building to the
other, but he said he didn't know
the youths who grabbed and threw
him to the ground, or why the in-
cident occurred.
Nor could Miller guess whether
the scuffle was related to the
shootings, although he said the
shootings began shortly before he
was attacked.
Most students hurried on to
classes after the shootings. Accord-
ing to Linda Shaw, 15, the gun-
shots "sounded like firecrackers,"
and although she says she saw the
pistol she added that "most peo-
ple figured it was a toy or some-
thing."
"There's fights around here all
the time," added Shaw.
Although officials dismissed
school early and barred students
from the building for the afternoon,
they said thattthetransition to
classes after the shootings was
"very calm.
At a news conference given by
Pontiac school system administra-
tors yesterday afternoon, Pontiac
Central Principal Donald McMil-
len said that the term had been
"the quietest at Pontiac Central in
ye.$Asked if he felt there were any
way the shootings could have been
prevented, McMillen replied no,
and added "it's a little bit like a
hijacking "
Pontiac Central has about 2,000
students, 36 per cent of them black.
The school will open as scheduled
this moning~. athniuoh there wHi

saw a friend of my uncle's and he
gave me and Terry a ride home."
The boys called their parents'
and were taken to nearby St. Jo-
seph's Hospital. Both said they did
not know the gunman.
One of the gunshot victims, 1S-
year-old Nancy Worley did not
even know she had been shot until
she had reached her next class.
According to Central Principal
Donald McMillen, Worley sat in i
her literature class for "a while"
before she realized her arm was
bleeding. After b e i n g shuffled
through several offices she finally
reached McMillen, who immediate-
ly sent her off in an ambulance
to a hospital.
The other victim, 16-year--old
Kathy Winton, came to McMilen
complaining that she had been
shot with a "BB gun." She too was
rushed off to a nearby hospital.
No motive has yet been estab-"
lished for the shootings. Hahn said
he saw two youths "squaring off,"
presumably to fight, just before
the gunfire. But neither youth was
the gunman, he said.
Dale Miller, 16, walked through
the courtyard as the gunfire was
raging. He said he heard a sound
"like firecrackers," and then was
jumped from behind by an unknown
youth and forced to the ground.
Miller said while he was on the
ground he was repeatedly kicked
by a group of black students. He
managed to get up, went to class,
and heard nothing else of the in-
cident until later in the day.
Officials are openly worried about
any far-reaching weffectsthe in-
cident may have. Pontiac has long
been the scene of racial conro-
versy, and the attack on a pre-1
dominantelybwhite group of s-u-
dents by a black gunman, can only
worsen racial tensions.
But school officials and police
alike call the shooting incident an
isolated one. They seem to think
the gunman was firing indiscrimi-
nately at the crowd of students,
with no particular targets.
The students, who remained calm
throughout the day, seem to agree
that the shooting holds no larger
racial implications. When asked
whether he held any animosity to-
wards the school's blacks after
being shot, Hahn replied that he
really hadn't thought about it.
