A 5:30pm email to GHS parents from Dr. Winters at GHS reads:  “The incident after school is attracting considerable media attention as a large number of police responded to the scene. At this point we know no one was injured. Two juvenile students have been detained by Greenwich Police and they are investigating the incident. Initial reports from GPD tell us that at least one of the students detained is a GHS student and one is from Stamford. I regret that this behavior happened. You can be confident that we will maintain our usual safe and secure building environment at school tomorrow.

Thank you, Chris Winters, GHS Headmaster
