A student has been taken into custody after wounding 2 students. One student, who is in critical condition has been airlifted to a nearby hospital, while the other student refused treatment because his wounds were not severe.

The student walked in a science class and yelled a students name before shooting that student in the chest with a 12-gauge shot gun which was recovered.
