Show Details

Just after lunch at Westside Middle School; two classmates dressed in camouflage opened fire from the woods behind the school on a group of students and teachers waiting on the playground after a fire drill. The students would later learn that the school was evacuated because one of their future assailants pulled the fire alarm. When the firing ceased, five people were dead and another ten were injured. Inboden had lost one of her best friends in the assault and had become a survivor of the Westside Middle School Massacre, one of the many school shootings in 1998 that led up to the most well known school shooting at Columbine High School in 1999. More than a decade later, Inboden looks back at the event and who her fellow Westside Middle School Warriors are today. Based on numerous interviews with the survivors, The Warriors tells the stories of their daily battles and triumphs living in the shadow of this event.
