THREE IN HOSPITAL AFTER SHOOTING AT HIGH SCHOOL

-

A fight at a Texas high school ended in gunfire on Wednesday morning, sending three people to a hospital and spurring a search for the suspect who fled the scene, police said.

At least two of the four injured people, one of whom did not require hospitaliz­ation, suffered gunshot wounds, police said. Three were students at Timberview High School in Arlington, Texas, they said.

“I just want to emphasize that this is not a random act of violence,” Arlington Assistant Police Chief Kevin Kolbye told reporters. “What we believe happened, preliminar­ily, is that there was a fight between a student and another individual in a class and a gun was used, and there are four victims.”

Police quickly identified the 18-year-old suspect who left the school’s sprawling campus by car. The incident prompted a lockdown and a massive police response to secure the building.
