Sioux Falls Police information officer Sam Clemens said a 911 call came in at 10 a.m. Wednesday. A student had entered the building and went to the principal's office. There was a struggle between the student and Principal Kevin Lein, and Lein was shot in the arm.

Clemens said Ryan Rollinger heard the gunshot, went to help and tackled the shooter. He and athletic director Joey Struwe held the student until authorities arrived.

The school was put on lockdown at 10:03 a.m.

Lein called superintendent Jim Holbeck from the hospital.

"He is in very good spirits," Holbeck said. Lein's first question was to ask how Holbeck was doing, "so that tells you a little bit about him."

Lein's wife, Amy, later said Kevin is home resting after a short stay in a Sioux Falls hospital.

"He's fine," she said.
