A final protocol, which was published Tuesday, states the eligibility expanded to three dozen classrooms and students and staff who were present within the designated area at the time of the shooting or present “on campus and either provided direct assistance to a gunshot victim or took extraordinary action to prevent loss of life.”
Under the protocol, the eligibility was separated into three categories: legal heirs of those killed, victims physically wounded by gunfire and individuals who were present and experienced psychological trauma.READ MORE: Detroit Retiree Sees Sidewalk Repaired Months After Water Main Break
