BALTIMORE, Md. — After Baltimore City School officials closed Frederick Douglass High School on Monday and Tuesday to "allow time to plan counseling and support for students following Friday's shooting at the school", the school will reopen on a two-hour delay on Wednesday.

The district announced the school will be open for students beginning at 10 a.m. on Feb. 13.

The closings and delays comes after a school staffer was shot by the 25-year-old brother of a student during school hours.

Baltimore City School Police officers who were inside the building at the time of the shooting were able to arrest 25-year-old Neil Davis. Davis was charged with attempted first degree murder and firearms violations.

Detectives say Davis was also charged with the November 10, 2018 murder of 25-year-old Darelle Yancey.
