The little girl called the Sheriff’s Department at 4:39 a.m. to report the shooting. None of the children were harmed.

Kimble worked in the cafeteria of Palm Elementary, just one street over from the house.

“I’m just as surprised as anyone else right now,” said Brenda Lightfoot-Handy, Kimble’s supervisor. “I’m just trying to process this.”

More information has yet to be released by authorities.
