The alleged shooter was picked up about three hours after a Fern Creek Traditional High School student was wounded Tuesday afternoon, according to Louisville police Sgt. Phil Russell. It’s unclear if the the alleged shooter and the injured student knew  each other.


Russell said the suspect left the 1,400-student school immediately after firing the shot.

“It appears it is an isolated incident that happened just inside the school,” Russell said. “Obviously a large crime scene, but it was isolated to just inside the building.”

Video from television stations showed police escorting students with their hands over their heads out of the school in the southern part of the city to a nearby softball field.

And there was another school shooting earlier in the day.

Earlier Tuesday, a student was shot by a fellow student outside a North Carolina high school just minutes before classes began, and the suspect then waited for police to arrive, authorities said.

That shooting happened around 7:40 a.m. as the two male students argued in an on-campus courtyard at Albemarle High School, Albemarle Police Chief William Halliburton said at a news conference.

The shooter put down his gun after firing two shots, walked into the principal’s office and waited for police, Halliburton said.[su_csky_ad]

    Why shouldn’t these students feel it’s A-OK to bring guns to school when state legislatures, the NRA, and some American citizens are doing everything they can in order to be able to take guns everywhere?

    A guy here in GA is suing a school district for the right to take a gun into the school his kids attend.

    I guess he’s afraid some of the kids, teachers, cafeteria workers, janitorial workers, or a member of the grounds crew pose a threat to his life. /s/
