Parents in south Los Angeles reportedly gathered in protest after learning a high school student accused in a recent murder investigation could be returning to class.

ABC7 reported that Cameron Terrell, 18, is allegedly facing one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder after being involved in an incident that left at least one person dead. Justin Holmes was fatally shot and, according to authorities, Terrell is under suspicion for driving the vehicle that held the suspects who are accused of firing the fatal shot.

After posting bail, reported ABC7, Terrell was released and allegedly did not inform his high school that he was facing charges, technically allowing him to return to class.

While it wasn’t made clear if he did return, parents of students at Palos Verdes High School took to an offsite location to protest his potential return.

Parents told ABC7 that they were concerned for students’ safety if Terrell, who some believe to possibly be linked to a South Los Angeles gang, should return.

“To have an adult who is charged with the worst crime possible being allowed to attend school with 3,000 kids, it’s not right, and I believe the education code supports his suspension,” said parent Rod Uyeda to ABC7.

ABC7 reports that the school’s principal Charles Park confirmed that Terrell’s parents accepted an offer to have their son finish his education at an offsite location starting immediately.
