Earlier this morning, an Ohio middle-school student shot himself causing schools in the Jackson Local School District to be on lockdown. The seventh-grader was in the bathroom when he shot himself at Jackson Memorial Middle School.
There have not been any updates on the child’s condition, but he was transported to the hospital. Jackson Local School posted on Facebook that he “suffered and apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound”. Because of this incident, four elementary schools were closed. The high school in the neighboring area was being evacuated.
The news of this comes less than a week after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, shot and killed 17 people at a Florida high school.
No further details have been provided on the Ohio student.
