An unidentified student at La Salle High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, reportedly attempted suicide by shooting himself with a gun in front of classmates in a classroom Monday morning.
The incident occurred around 9 a.m. EST when officers were called to the scene by a number of students who were calling 911.
Local CBS news station, WKRC, report that officers said that the “young man” was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treatment and his condition has yet to be made known.
Greg Tankersley, director of community development at the high school, said that the student is fighting for his life and is urging members of the community to pray for him and his family, according to the local Fox news station.
The student, whom authorities have confirmed his identity but wouldn’t immediately publicly release it, did not make any threats to shoot anyone else, and no one else was hurt.
The private all-boys school, which is associated with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, was placed on lockdown after the shooting, and parents are being asked to pick up their children from the school, according to the local ABC station.
