As students returned to Grand River Elementary Magnet School Monday, parents filed into the library to meet with Lansing's Mayor, Police Chief and Captain and School District leaders.

It was the first chance for some parents, since last Thursday's playground shooting, to voice safety concerns.

Lansing Police have increased patrols around the area and boundaries will be extended for the area's community police officer. The new boundaries will include the school.

The Lansing School District promises change too. Its officers will be patrolling the area more and new signs could be posted asking older teens, maybe even adults to stay out.

Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero says there will be more meetings detailing the next steps.

Meantime, the alleged shooter was arraigned Monday. Trensio Hood is charged with the shooting and a number of other crimes. Davin Lewis, the 17-year-old who was shot, remains in the hospital in critical condition.
