    2 injured in NC school shooting.

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/08/30/sch...ing/index.html

    (CNN) -- A suspect fired eight shots at a Hillsborough, North Carolina, high school, injuring two students and sending others running for cover, police and parents told local media outlets.

    According to WTVD-TV, Orange County deputies have a suspect in custody.

    The male suspect drove to Orange High School about 1 p.m. ET and didn't stop for school security, WTVD reported. He got out of his vehicle and fired the shots, striking a female student in the shoulder.

    Another male student was injured by broken glass, the television station reported.

    School district spokeswoman Anne D'Annunzio told The News & Observer in Raleigh that both victims "are fine for now."

    Brad Davis, whose daughter, Rebecca, is a junior at the high school, told the newspaper that a telephone message sent to parents identified the shooter as a former student.

    The television station News 14 reported that two guns were on the ground outside a gray minivan in the parking lot. One appeared to be a shotgun, the other a rifle, the station reported.

    Orange High School and nearby Stanford Middle School were both placed on lockdown after the shooting, and parents were not allowed on campus, according to WTVD.

    The schools began busing out students about 3:30 p.m. ET, News 14 reported.

    Linda Miller told News 14 that her daughter called her from the school during the shooting.

    "She said, 'Mommy, mommy, please come get me,' " Miller told the television station. "She said, 'The shooters are in our school.' And I'm like, 'What are you talking about?' And I hear all of these kids running around and screaming."

    Junior Scott Nicholson told The News & Observer that he and friends were eating lunch in the cafeteria when they heard gunshots.

    "Teachers started yelling, 'Get down!' " he told the newspaper. "People started rushing into the cafeteria from outside, and those were some scary faces."

    The students began taking cover under tables and chairs, Nicholson said.

    Hillsborough is about 45 miles (72 kilometers) northwest of Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Orange High has 1,009 students in grades nine through 12, the school Web site states.

    Jeez, already? Get 'em yet? Isn't that near one of the people on here?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    I am about 1.5 hours or so from it. I know an officer with Hillsborough P.D. I wonder what he knows.

    Isn't this the second one in a week or so?

    We actually have an "Active School Shooter" class for dispatchers because of Santana HS a couple years ago, one of our dispatcher's had a son at school that day, while she was at work.

    Yes. That is the second one in a week. Fortunately, The rapid deployment techniques we are trained in now had a lot to do with minimizing the number of injuries. It's sad when a low life wants to injure kids at a school.
