Forensic skills tested at crime scene competition at Grayson College

Posted:

DENISON -- Forensic science students had their skills tested Thursday at a competition between Sherman and Denison High Schools.

Grayson College hosted a crime scene competition on-campus Thursday morning.

Students from Denison and Sherman competed in four mock events.

They included an indoor simulated shooting, a crime scene investigation and a search for evidence outside using metal detectors.

"It's amazing what science can do, how you can actually find a criminal off of something that they might have left at a crime scene," Denison senior Shelby Woodall said.

It's the 12th year Grayson College has hosted the event.

Students from Sherman High School won two of the four events. A student from Denison won one, and there was a tie in the fourth event.
