Police received a call about a possible shooting and found the body of 46-year-old Ruth Marie Kilgus around 12:40 p.m. Police learned that Jesse Kilgus planned to pick his child up from school and confronted him there less than 20 minutes later. Kilgus tried to enter the school, but he was told by a school resource officer that it was under lockdown. Kilgus returned to his vehicle. Police arrived, and after about five minutes of negotiations, Kilgus allegedly raised his handgun, and seven officers from three law enforcement agencies shot and killed him.
