At least five people were wounded early today in a shooting at an Ohio high school, says a Fox News report. A suspect is in custody.
At least four of the shooting victims at Chardon High School are students. Three are in critical condition, while one victim is in stable condition, according to the report. The condition of the fifth person is unknown.
The 1,100-student high school is about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
The report said that the shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. Monday.
The suspected lone shooter, believed to be a student, fled the school on foot and was later apprehended after turning himself in.
The school remains on lockdown.
Guy Grace, Director Security and Emergency Planning for Littleton Public Schools, told Security magazine, "No matter where and when these tragedies arise it feels like someone in your family just got hurt. We feel for the students,staff and community because they will deal with these events for the rest of their lives. Healing must start now, avoid the blame, second guessing and finger pointing as much as possible and learn from what happened. What we learn from this will save lives in the future."
