A gunman killed three students and wounded six others at a high school in western Michigan, authorities said Monday. The student who authorities say opened fire was taken into custody.
Sutton Public Schools Superintendent Dan Lorentzen confirmed to the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office that three students were killed at Fitzgerald High School, about 50 miles northwest of Detroit.
The sheriff’s office says the shooter killed one victim at the school and two others at an adjacent hospital before taking his own life. The sheriff’s office gave no details on the shootings.
The Monroe County Intermediate School District told parents of at least one student who had been hospitalized that some students were wounded.
Timothy Brosnan, director of communications for the school district, tweeted that parents were told their child was going to be OK but “it’s way too early to say.”
Brosnan said on Twitter that some students had been flown to a hospital for treatment.
Photos of the school showed a large group of law enforcement officers surrounding the school.
