High school on lockdown after student shoots schoolmate in North Carolina

Matthews Police confirmed Butler High School is on lockdown after one person was shot

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

Footage that appeared on Instagram showed screaming students fleeing the crowded hallway after the suspect pulled a gun on the victim. Those upgrades included hardened doors, perimeter fencing, reinforced glass, surveillance cameras, additional locks and locksmiths, but no metal detectors.

Yvonne Gloston, a parent of a CMS high schooler, said her child does not go to Butler, but that she had friends and family with children at the high school and traveled to the school site after the shooting. "What makes it doubly hard is that it was one of our students who was the shooter".

"I am heartbroken to hear that we have lost a student to school violence in one of our schools".

Matthews Mayor Paul Bailey also offered his condolences to everyone affected at Butler High. We do not search our students on the way into school. "What would parents have said to us if we let kids run out and didn't know where they were?" "This is a very sad day here in Matthews".

On the other hand, Barcelona defeated Sevilla 4-2 at the Camp Nou and Lionel Messi left the game injured just after 26 minutes. A win will ease the pressure off the manager's back and the fans will have the first bragging rights at their oppositions.

"The student who was shot is in surgery at this time".

"We are incredibly saddened that we had a loss of life on one of our campuses", Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox said.

Parents were alerted to the incident via a robo call issued by CMS. Tyrell said that McKeithen was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center after the incident, where he was pronounced dead.

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. The campus has been secured by law enforcement, no immediate danger exists and an investigation continues. The argument began as a verbal altercation that turned physical, according to school officials. Scott Simpson's other child, daughter Bella, who is in the 11th grade, left Butler to attend Commonwealth High.
