FAIRMOUNT (AP) — A Fairmount high school student shot himself in front of his classmates in an apparent suicide attempt Thursday morning, school officials said.

The student, whose name, age and condition were not immediately released, shot himself at around 8:30 a.m. and didn’t threaten anyone else at the school, Principal Jay Townsend said.

The roughly 110 students were ordered to the library after the shooting and the school was locked down for about an hour before officials cancelled classes for the day.
