Shots Fired: Teen Kills Himself at Middle School in Police Confrontation

RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) – A teenage suspect killed himself inside an eastern Indiana middle school when he was confronted by police during a shooting Thursday morning, investigators said.
 
Indiana State Police Sgt. John Bowling said no other students or staff were injured during the shooting at Dennis Middle School in Richmond, which is near the Indiana-Ohio state line about 60 miles (96 kilometers) east of Indianapolis.
 
“Local police had received information and they reacted on that very swiftly, and I think because of their swift reaction and also the swift reaction at the school that no student injuries happened,” Bowling said.
 
Bowling didn’t detail what information was given to police, but he said officers are investigating at the school and another site.
 
Bowling said gunshots were fired during the incident, but he couldn’t immediately confirm how many shots were fired or by whom. He said he also couldn’t yet confirm whether the suspect was a student at the school or his age.
 
All students and staffers were safe following the shooting, said Bridget Hazelbaker, a spokeswoman for Richmond Community Schools. She told the Palladium-Item that the suspect was the only person injured in the shooting.
 
Students from the school were being bused to Richmond High School for parents to pick them up.
