A male student was taken into custody after a shooting at an Indiana middle school that left a student and a teacher critically injured on Friday, authorities said.
Noblesville Police Department Chief Kevin Jowitt told reporters Friday that a male student was detained following the call of an active shooter at Noblesville West Middle School at 9:06 a.m. ET.
There were two people injured – a teacher and a juvenile student – Jowitt said. The victims were transported to the hospital and their families have been notified.
The suspect nor the victims have been identified.
Jowitt said he did not believe there was any further threat to the school but added there was a threat directed to Noblesville High School, where many middle school students were bused to following the incident. He said police were at the school’s campus monitoring the scene but have not found anything. A number of agencies, including the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on the scene investigating the incident. Jowitt said an investigation has been opened into the shooting.
Sources told FOX 59 the suspect walked into a science classroom with a gun and opened fire, hitting a female. A teacher was able to “swat” the gun from the suspect.
