Angie Martinez, a mother of a student who attends Santa Fe High School in Texas, the site of another school shooting on Friday, told CNN that she believes the shooter conducted a test run in February, but authorities did nothing to prevent the shooting.

CNN’s Kate Bolduan asked Martinez what was next for her, following the shooting.

“What now? What now is [that it’s] so aggravating that this school has been warned before, this has happened again. This is the second incident. The first incident was a prank call,” Martinez said. “But they did that as a warning the first time, supposedly. They said that they had did that to see how fast the officers will get to the school.”

Bolduan asked Martinez when this incident happened.

“This was about two months ago,” Martinez said.

Bolduan cut off Martinez to go live to President Trump addressing the shooting after Martinez’s remarks.

The Associated Press reported in February on the incident that Martinez referred to.

According to the Associated Press:

“Officials say they found no threat when responding to a high school southeast of Houston that was placed on lockdown after students and teachers said they heard “popping sounds” outside.”

“Santa Fe police said Wednesday that after responding to the report of shots being fired in the surrounding area, officers swept the campus. They found no threat and no injuries.”

“Dozens of police officers and Galveston County sheriff’s deputies responded to Santa Fe High School as concerned parents and others watched from a nearby road.”

Authorities have not yet addressed whether the two incidents were related.
