총격 사건은 Winston-Salem의 Mount Tabor 고등학교에서 발생했습니다., the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office tweeted. All other students are safe and were being taken to the Harris Teeter grocery store where they can be reunited with their parents, 경찰은 말했다.
The sheriff’s office named a local YMCA site earlier. The Winston-Salem Police Department said there was a disturbance at the Harris Teeter site but a possible second shooting had not been confirmed.
The injured student was taken to a hospital. Their injuries were not disclosed.
“We and the WSPD have secured the campus and are doing everything possible to keep students safe,” 보안관 사무실에서 말했다. “We are actively investigating what happened and will share confirmed information as appropriate.”
Authorities were still searching for a suspect.
The high school and other schools in the area have been placed on lockdown out of an abundance of caution, the Winston-Salem Police Department said.
“We are actively seeking the suspect,” 부서는 말했다. “We have no confirmed information of any other shootings or injuries.”
A couple told Fox affiliate WGHTV that their daughter was at the school at the time of the shooting but that they have gotten in contact with her and she is safe.
“Your heart stops for a few minutes until you finally get in touch with them,” the father said.
Christopher Johnson said that his son told him that he heard the gunshots while in the school gym and students were told to hide because there was an active shooter on campus.
“You see stuff like this in the media,” 존슨, whose son was still at the school awaiting transportation to a pickup point, told the Associated Press. “It’s scary to know that it actually reached out and touched you this time. My son’s not a victim, but he’s part of this and he’ll probably remember this forever.”
노스 캐롤라이나 정부. Roy Cooper, 민주당 원, said he has been briefed about the shooting.
“For the second time this week, we have seen a shooting in a North Carolina school,” 그는 성명에서 말했다. “Our prayers are with the victims, their families and all the students of Mt. Tabor High School in Winston-Salem.”
“We must work to ensure the safety of students and educators, quickly apprehend the shooter and keep guns off school grounds,” 그는 덧붙였다.
