Shooting at school
A student was shot and killed on Wednesday at a high school in North Carolina, police said.
Police went to Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem in the middle of the school day and found one student who had been shot. He was taken to a local hospital but “succumbed to his injuries”, police said.
After a year of largely remote learning due to the pandemic, US students returning to school this month face a renewed risk of mass shootings, which have plagued the US education system for years.
Wednesday’s shooting was already the second at a North Carolina high school this week.
