Three people, including the gunman, are dead after a shooting at a St Louis high school on Monday.
The shooting was reported just after 9 a.m. at Central Visual and Performing Arts High School. The St. Louis Public Schools said on Twitter that the shooter was “quickly stopped by police” inside the school.
The suspect, who police say appeared to be about 20 years old, was armed with a long gun. He was injured during a shootout with police and pronounced dead later, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said during a news conference.
Police did not release the names of the two victims that were killed. One is a teenage girl and the other a woman.
A total of eight victims were taken to hospital with either gunshot wounds or shrapnel injuries. There’s also reports that one victim suffered from a cardiac arrest.
