BREAKING: 14 Year old gunman wounds 4 in Ohio school lunch room before K-9 unit catches him
A gunman burst into the lunch room of an Ohio school Monday morning and opened fire, wounding four students before a K-9 unit caught him in the nearby woods, local media report.
The shooting unfolded at Madison Junior/Senior High School in Butler County. Investigators say they're not certain whether the 14-year-old suspect attended that school. They did not name him.
He bolted from the school after the shooting and ran into a field before the K-9 unit caught him in the woods, the Journal-News reports. Investigators said he used a .380 caliber handgun.
Two students were hurt by gunshots and two others apparently by shrapnel, Butler County Chief Deputy Anthony Dwyer said.
The school lifted its lockdown after the sheriff gave the all-clear. "It was painful... hard to concentrate," parent Ken Gairland said as he drove to pick up his sons.
At least one of the victims was shot in the leg. The other injuries appear to be more serious, but not life-threatening.
