A father was shaken after he saw the aftermath of the school shooting in Parkland.

Damian Rodriguez said a fence used to run along the front of Cape Coral High School. Rodriguez said he noticed the fence was taken down about six months ago.

"I would love to see the fence go back up," said Rodriguez.

He said he thinks security should be added after the school shooting in Broward county, not taken away.

"To see that going on, it's sad and tragic," said Rodriguez. "I don't want it come to our neighborhoods, especially when we had measures to deter people and they're brought down," he added.

4 In Your Corner reached out to a spokesperson from the school district. The spokesperson said the school is fenced in on the sides and around the back of the school. Visitors have to drive and check in with campus security before they're allowed to park up front.

But, parents are worried about visitors who don't want to check in.

"We have to make a lot of choices to help protect our children," said Bobby Davern, another parent. "If you look at a bank, we're protecting our money than our children."
