Authorities: Student Shoots Self In Ohio Classroom

Posted: Updated:

 

CINCINNATI (AP) - A student at an Ohio Catholic high school is in critical condition after police say he pulled out a gun and shot himself in his classroom.

A University of Cincinnati Medical Center spokeswoman reported the student's condition Monday afternoon, about six hours after the shooting at La Salle High School west of Cincinnati.

She says his parents have provided a statement thanking people for their thoughts andprayers while asking for privacy. She didn't release any other information about the student's condition.

Police say there was no apparent threat to anyone else at the school. The high school went immediately into lockdown, and students have been dismissed to their parents.
