Suspect captured after shooting at Indiana middle school

A student was accused and taken into custody Friday after a shooting at a Noblesville, Indiana.

The shooting in the middle school left three people injured, officials said.

A student asked for permission to leave the classroom and “he returned armed with two handguns,” Jowitt said at an afternoon news conference. The situation was quickly resolved, and the student was arrested in or near the classroom, police public information officer Lt. Bruce Barnes said.

Police public information officer Lt. Bruce Barnes said that police are seeking several search warrants in their investigation. Police don’t know the motive or where the guns came from, he said.

The shooting comes a week after 10 people were killed at a school in Santa Fe, Texas.
There have been 23 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed so far this year — an average of more than one shooting a week.
