    JONESBORO, Ark. (KTHV) -- Today marks 15 years since the Jonesboro school shooting that left four students and a teacher dead.

    13-year-old Mitchell Johnson and 11-year-old Andrew Golden pulled a fire alarm to lure their classmates outside at Westside Elementary School.

    Armed with several guns, Johnson and Golden fired 30 rounds at the students and teachers as they exited the building.

    Ten other children were wounded.

    Both shooters were released on their respective 21st birthdays. Johnson, now age 28, is currently incarcerated on drug-related charges.
