Update: 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 and prayers 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.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities say a high school student pulled out a gun and shot himself in a classroom at a Cincinnati area high school.

The Hamilton County sheriff's office says the youth was taken to a hospital with a self-inflicted wound. They say there apparently was no threat to other students at La Salle High School, a private school west of Cincinnati.

A shot was reported at the school Monday morning at around 9 a.m. The school was put in lockdown until police confirmed there was no active shooter.

A school official is urging prayers for the student, but says no other information will be released about him.
