According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office (LSCO), the school resource officer at Harns Marsh Elementary in Lehigh Acres received information in regards to 39-year-old Adrean Johnson striking students.

Representatives from the Lee County School District responded to the school, removed the educator from the classroom while the detectives conducted interviews, and collected evidence.
