Wednesday's shooting SuccessTech Academy in downtown Cleveland came as a shock to many across the region. A 14-year-old boy who had a history of mental problems opened fire, wounding four before killing himself as police arrived. Asa Coon had been suspended two days earlier for fighting, and police believe the two teachers he shot were targets. Join us Thursday morning at nine, for a conversation about the incident and the questions it raises. Listen to WCPN's Special Report on the Shooting at SuccessTech Academy
