South Dakota principal wounded in high school shooting: media

Reuters

The principal of a South Dakota high school was wounded by a gunshot on Wednesday and a student was taken into custody, according to officials and media reports.

The gunshot victim was in stable condition, Lincoln County State’s Attorney Tom Wollman said.

Reuters was not immediately able to confirm local media reports that the injured person was the principal of Harrisburg High School south of Sioux Falls.  

The shooter, a student, was subdued by staff and was taken into custody, Wollman said.

The school was placed on lockdown and the students were safe, officials and media said.

Authorities created a perimeter and searched the building after receiving a report of shots fired at the school at about 10 a.m., Lincoln County sheriff 911 director Todd Baldwin said.

    Here we go again.

    “Reuters was not immediately able to confirm local media reports that the injured person was the principal of Harrisburg High School south of Sioux Falls.”

    ‘Local media’ is no more credible than national or international media, so that’s hardly surprising.

    “The shooter, a student, was subdued by staff and was taken into custody, Wollman said.”

    sketchy info. If the shooter was armed, how, exactly, was he “subdued by staff” without any of them getting shot?

    “The school was placed on lockdown and the students were safe, officials and media said.”

    Define “safe”.

    “safe” from WHO???

    If this actually happened, I’m glad the principal was shot, and sorry he’s expected to survive.

    Maybe push him off the roof next time.
