Questions are being raised after an armed 25-year-old man was able to enter Frederick Douglass High School in Northwest Baltimore and shoot a 56-year-old hall monitor February 8.

The injured staffer was a male and the suspect is reportedly in custody, though there is no word on the condition of the shooting victim.

"No one should be able to enter the building; that goes to the problem I saw all the time", said Scott Miller Phoenix, a former Baltimore public school teacher who taught for over 30 years in the city.

The suspected shooter was immediately subdued and taken into custody, Conaway said.

The shooting occurred while there was a meeting in the school, police said.

However, the flare up of violence inside a school is raising fresh questions about the safety of the city's educational facilities.

Police said he did not make it into the school before his arrest. We only learned about the shooting from a cousin who works for the school system.

G'Mar Matthews, an 18-year-old senior, said metal detectors at the school's main entrance were generally deactivated after classes begin for the day.

The victim was later identified as Michael Marks, a special education assistant at the school, Baltimore's Fox 45 reported.

'We didn't hear a thing from the school. He criticized a recent unanimous vote by Baltimore's school board rejecting firearms for school resource officers posted to city schools.

An AP review a year ago suggested that adding more officers and armed guards or arming teachers would nearly certainly have unintended consequences.

A shooting investigation is underway at Fredrick Douglass High School.
