#SWAT executes parent at #Riverside elementary school

SWAT officers on Tuesday evening swarmed a Riverside elementary school classroom and shot a parent who had taken a teacher hostage, ending an hours-long standoff.

The parent, identified as Riverside resident Luvelle Kennon, 27, died later at a hospital, said Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback.

During the seven-hour standoff, crisis negotiators made contact with the man, but never heard from Montgomery, which is why authorities decided to storm into the room at about 6 p.m. Witnesses did not report seeing any weapons.

The parent, who has a daughter in first grade, did not appear to follow the school district’s safety procedures and check in with the front desk.
