At least one student injured in North Carolina school shooting

At least one student injured in North Carolina school shooting

One person was taken to the hospital following a shooting at a North Carolina high school early Monday, WSOC TV reported. They believe it to be an isolated incident and the scene has been secured.

"We are incredibly saddened that we had a loss of life on one of our campuses", Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox said.

The school district wrote in a statement that "no immediate danger exists" and that "an investigation continues".

Neither Wilcox nor Tyrrell said which student was being bullied.

CMS does not have metal detectors in school, nor does it perform searches on students. Parents of students at Butler High School only were instructed to pick up their children. The suspect has been taken into custody.

The school briefly went into a lockdown as the wounded student, who was also not identified by police, was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Butler High School will not have school on Tuesday.

She said the shooting reveals just how serious the conversation about school safety really is. "There were many kids in the hallways when this took place", he said.

"I am heartbroken to hear that we have lost a student to school violence in one of our schools".

The Charlotte Observer released a video of students screaming "let us out", during the confusion immediately following the incident. Our schools and students rely on co-operation between and among each other.

Officials said the shooting happened in a main hallway after a fight between the suspect and victim.

He said the system was reviewing its security procedures.

Guardians and parents were advised of the incident via email and telephone calls.

Classes did proceed on campus for students not retrieved by their parents.

Brenda Kenyon, Ryan's mother, said police at the scene told parents to gather at nearby Elevation Church.
