Two students were shot at a Virginia high school Monday morning, police said. A suspect was not in custody after the shooting at Newport News’ Heritage High School, Police Chief Steve Drew told reporters.
Drew said the two victims are 17 years old. A male student was shot in the side of the face, and a female student was shot in the lower leg, Drew said.
The wounds weren’t considered to be life-threatening, Drew said. At least four students total were taken to area hospitals, but only two were shot, the chief said.
Students were evacuated from the school, police said. Parents were told they can meet their children at the school’s tennis courts.
