Students Approached by Person With Gun Near Oak Cliff's Sunset High School

There are also discussions to permanently stop the use of the satellite classrooms

Two Dallas Independent School District students had a run-in with a group of people who fired a gun into the air near Sunset High School in Oak Cliff Wednesday, according to a letter the district sent to parents.

Two Sunset High School students were going from class to lunch, across the street, when a group of people tried to "lure them," the letter said.

The letter continued that the students continued to cross the street, at which point an individual in the group fired a gun into the air. The group then drove off down an alley.

The students were not injured and police were notified, the letter said.

District officials told Telemundo 39 the satellite classrooms will be closed for the rest of the week and into spring break. There are also discussions to permanently stop the use of those classrooms.

The incident comes in the wake of a series of robberies near DISD campuses in Oak Cliff.

Prior to Wednesday, Dallas ISD confirmed there had been six total incidents at four different schools: Kimball High School, Roosevelt High School, Zan Holmes Middle School and Stockard Middle School.

Dallas ISD urged parents to remind their students about "stranger danger," to avoid unsafe situations and to always be aware of their surroundings.
