Student Dies After Shooting at North Carolina High School, Police Say

Shooting at North Carolina high school One student injured another in custody

A high school student accused of shooting and killing another student at Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina, Monday morning has been arrested.

In a statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, families arriving on the scene were instructed to pick up their students at the entrance of Butler High.

Tyrrell said a 16-year-old ninth-grader is charged with first-degree murder and is being held in the Mecklenburg County jail.

"Our hearts are with the family, loved ones, friends and everyone affected by the tragedy which occurred this morning at Butler High School".

The suspect and victim were both 16, but the suspect was in 9th grade, while the victim was in 10th grade. Teachers were told to finish out the day, according to Tracy Russ, chief communications officer for the school district.

The school was placed on lockdown as officials worked to investigate the scene.

"From next door you could hear screams from the police coming in, saying hands up, hands up", he said.

Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said the shooting may have been related to bullying.

Sophomore Yahir Almanza, 15, came into the hallway just as the shooting happened.

"Butler High School is on lockdown after a student was shot on campus this morning". "And I wish I had an answer to that".

"This is really sad to see someone go that ... has been your friend, for I don't know how many years", Sanchez said.

"I'm right there, I hear pop, pop, pop, and everyone's running, people are trampling over each other". She said the shooting has the school community in disbelief.

The student was shot by a fellow student during a fight in a crowded school hallway Monday and died at a hospital, officials said. "And what makes it doubly worse is it was one of our students who was the shooter".

"We don't actively search every bad that comes into school each and every day".

"And we just didn't have that information until after it had happened", he said. Our schools and students rely on cooperation between and among each other.

Gavriel Fulcher-Daniels (left with Stephen Daniels) said: 'It sounded like a balloon but louder'.

One student said that he was in the cafeteria eating breakfast when he witnessed the fight that led to the shooting.

"There were many kids in the hallways when this took place".

'We're incredibly saddened by the fact that we had a loss of life on one of our campuses today.

"I can just tell you that the shooter was taken into custody by Matthews Police Department, and his family is aware as well", Tyrrell said.

"I don't know how a young person gets a handgun in the state of North Carolina", Wilcox told reporters.

He said the system was reviewing its security procedures.

Wilcox defended keeping the students in class, explaining that the school wanted to ensure students could be safely transported home.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox called the incident "isolated".

Classes were proceeding for students who remained on campus.
