Montgomery County Public school students and staff members are being asked to wear Magruder High School’s colors – navy blue, grey, and white, on Tuesday to help unify the community after a 10th grade student was shot inside of the high school this past Friday.

Steven Alston Jr., a 17-year-old junior at Magruder High School, is facing charges of attempted 2nd degree murder, 1st degree assault, and possession of a dangerous weapon on school property, after allegedly shooting a fellow classmate in the school’s bathroom.  Alston is currently being held without bond is expected to appear in court today, according to FOX5.

According to the Montgomery County Police Department, a privately manufactured firearm (ghost gun) was found inside the school, which is believed to be the gun used by Alston, Jr.

The 15-year-old victim remains in critical condition.

Tomorrow will be the first day back for students since the shooting, as today was a professional day for teachers.
