Funny how it was only police who said they heard rifle fire. Every other description was "booms' "pops" "thuds" etc. Dull sounds more apt to be made by a shotgun (which is exactly what Mirgam Bajrailu's described hearing).
Children aren't the most reliable of witnesses but their statements vary little from those of the adults on scene. Fortunately, they were interviewed soon after the event while things were still fresh in their memories.
As to whether or not the gunfire was simulated there were some windows damaged on the front of the school and the bullet holes in what we presume were several cars that were taped off in the parking lot. Why they only took or released pictures of Lauren Rousseau's car was strange, as was the rust formed in one of the holes which were far too large for .223 bullets to have made.
