Chardon High School Shooting, Gunfire at a high school outside Cleveland injured a number of students Monday morning, and at least one suspect has been taken into custody, officials said.
FBI agent Scott Wilson said that there was one suspected shooter, who is in custody. He said four students were wounded in the shooting but wouldn’t discuss the extent of the students’ injuries.
“CBS This Morning” correspondent John Miller reports that at least one of the students was critically injured.
The shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m. at the 1,100-student Chardon High School about 30 miles east of Cleveland, said Civil Deputy Erin Knife of the Geauga County Sheriff’s Office.
Television news footage showed anxious parents escorting children away from a school building, and ambulances could be seen outside. CBS affiliate WOIO-TV in Cleveland reports the high school was evacuated and students were taken to an elementary school to be picked up by their parents. Students on school buses were dropped off back at their homes.
A spokeswoman for Cleveland’s MetroHealth System said a medical helicopter was dispatched to the high school. Schools in the area were locked down.
