Two men were arrested on Sunday after reports that shots were fired from the roof of an elementary school in Richmond, Texas, local law enforcement officials said. No injuries were reported.

Police responded to calls at about 8 a.m. that shots were heard from the roof of the Velasquez Elementary School, according to the Facebook page of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office. Fort Bend borders Houston to the southwest.  

Two men, one in his 20s and the other in his 30s, were taken into custody at the school, the sheriff’s office said, adding that one of the men was playing bagpipes on the roof.

One handgun and two shell casings were recovered from the school.

The school district wrote to parents about the incident on Sunday to assure them the school is secure, the sheriff’s office said.

  1. Bagpipes means “‘White men”. Just another gun control skit to terrify naïve Americans with the belief that unless guns are confiscated, crazy White men wielding bagpipes and pistols will slaughter their kids.

  2. What were they doing on top of a school? School is still out, isn’t it? Bumbling idiots. And playing bagpipes on the roof, no less? Oh yea, you can’t make this shit up.

    1. Some areas this is start of week three.

      Week two locally.

      I thought guns were not allowed in schools…that committed a crime when he set out to shoot people!

  3. “… one of the men was playing bagpipes on the roof.”

    I prefer playing my tuba whenever I go on a shooting rampage.

  4. The school district wrote to parents about the incident on Sunday to assure them the school is secure, the sheriff’s office said.

    Clearly they have it all under control. It’s damn near abandoned for the summer break and they stopped nothing from happening, yet their tone implies they have remedied a situation. Pig logic.

    If the fellas were also wearing kilts proper on the rooftop, one one the ground could address the shooters with “I can see you’re nuts!”
