EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the shooting at Columbia High School.
On February 9 2004, Columbia High School was the scene of a shooting when 16-year-old Jon Romano opened fire at the school.
Michael Bennett, a special education teacher trying to stop the student, was shot in the leg. There were no other injuries.
