Student shot at North Carolina school, another student in custody”

A student opened fire at Butler High School on Monday, striking a classmate, police said.

The wounded student, whose identity was not disclosed, was taken to a local hospital and later died there, Tyrrell said. Police say the suspect is in custody and authorities have secured the campus.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District said on Facebook that the weapon had been secured by law enforcement.

The disagreement occurred in a hallway and there were "many kids in the hallways when it took place", he said in a press conference.

Police believe this was an isolated incident.

"We're incredibly saddened by the fact that we had a loss of life on one of our campuses today". Police are now interviewing students who may have witnessed the shooting. "We're incredibly sad, and we're sorry for this family", Wilcox said.

Wilcox said the school system was reviewing its security procedures to determine how the student got a gun into the school.

High school student Jorge Sanchez told WSOC-TV in Charlotte that the shooting happened as the result of an argument that escalated.

'I never ran so fast mom oh my god'.

Police said students who are not being picked up by parents will remain in school for classes.

A witness described how parents, who had no idea the extent of the shooting, were crying as they arrived at the school in response to messages from their children at the school.
