CLEVELAND (WJW) — John Adams College and Career Academy in Cleveland closed for a second day Thursday after a student was shot and killed at a bus stop after school on Tuesday.

Classes were canceled on Wednesday and supposed to resume on Thursday but a notice on the district’s website announces the closure on Jan. 12, citing “staff absences” as the reason.

The district says there will be no remote learning and the day will be considered a calamity day.

The shooting happened at around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday at a bus stop on MLK Jr. Drive right outside the school. Police say a male suspect walked up to 18-year-old Pierre McCoy and then shot and killed him before running away.

The suspect is described as wearing all black in a puffy jacket, ski mask, boots and jeans.

Cleveland City Ward 2 Councilman Kevin Bishop says he was told by investigators that McCoy was targeted, but the exact motive has not been revealed.

FOX 8 on Wednesday spoke with John Adams High School Principal Brain Evans, who said he asked for extra patrols because he wanted students and staff to feel a sense of security when they return.

“Everybody wants to feel safe,” Evans said. “We understand that we are in a city. We understand that crime statistics are in the neighborhood. But we still continue to come to work every day. Our students still come here every day. The building itself is a safe space.”

Evans said many, including himself, still need time to process because there were so many students and staff that witnessed the murder.

FOX 8 reached out to the district for more information on the school’s closing.
