Because the scene of the shooting was located 0.2 miles away from Genesee Elementary School, police communicated with Auburn Enlarged City School District Officials on Friday morning about the incident and informed officials that they did not "perceive any imminent threat" in the neighborhood during school hours.

Later Friday morning, several law enforcement officers from the multiple agencies responded to Holley Street, where a car that had been the subject of a "be on the lookout" alert was stopped. At least one person was taken into custody, but police declined to provide specifics on that situation other than to say it was "related on the peripheral of the (shooting) investigation."
