Schools in the Jackson Local School District in Ohio’s Stark County were on lockdown Tuesday after a student shot himself, CBS Cleveland affiliate WOIO reports. The seventh-grader shot himself in a restroom at Jackson Memorial Middle School on Tuesday morning, according to Jackson Township police.
The boy’s condition wasn’t immediately known. He was transported to a hospital.
Police did not say if the shooting was intentional or an accident. Jackson Local Schools said in a Facebook post he “suffered an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
Hundreds of parents gathered outside the school as school officials worked to dismiss students.
No other students and faculty members were injured, WOIO reported.
Four elementary schools in the district were closed Tuesday as a precaution, WOIO reports, and the high school in the area was being evacuated.
