Girl arrested in Pennsylvania school shooting
WILLIAMSPORT, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Another shooting at a U.S. high school left one student wounded and another in custody on Wednesday, Pennsylvania authorities said.
The shooting occurred at Bishop Neumann High School, a Roman Catholic school with an enrollment of 231 students in grades seven through 12. The town is about 180 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
Deputies quickly arrested a suspect in the shooting, Lycoming County Sheriff Charles Brewer said. A female student was being evaluated and treated for her injuries at a Williamsport Hospital, spokeswoman Linda Campbell said.
A diocesan official said an eighth-grade girl shot a female classmate once in the upper body, but the injury was not considered life-threatening.
School was cordoned off and students were evacuated after the incident. The shooting occurred about noon, Bob Rolley, a reporter for the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, told CNN.
The incident comes two days after a shooting at a high school in Santee, California, a suburb of San Diego. Two students died and 13 were wounded in that incident, and a 15-year-old freshman boy was expected to be arraigned Wednesday on murder, assault and weapons charges in connection with the rampage.
