In a statement from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, families arriving on the scene were instructed to pick up their students at the entrance of Butler High.

Tenth-grader Bobby McKeithen, 16, was rushed to hospital to undergo surgery for his gunshot wound but he later died.

Neither the shooter nor the victim has been identified. "The Butler High School community and CMS appreciate the support of the entire community during this hard time", said the post. The suspected shooter was also not identified.

A student opened fire at Butler High School on Monday, striking a classmate, police said.

No one, including parents, were being allowed on to the Butler High campus until police lifted the lock down, CMS officials said in the post.

Tyrrell said a fight inside the school led to the shooting.

The police department said on Facebook that the shooting was believed to be an isolated incident and that the scene has been secured.

Charlotte Mecklenburg School Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said the school did not have a policy of searching every bag that enters the school, but said all security procedures would be reviewed following the shooting.

"Some have asked me, how could someone, especially a student, come on to one of our campus (es) with a loaded gun", Wilcox said.




Almanza and two friends said they didn't know McKeithen very well, but they knew he was a friendly, goofy guy people enjoyed being around.

Surveillance video shows the two students getting into a fight before the shooting, Tyrrell said.

He said the victim, a friend of his, was shot in the back as he walked away.

'I never ran so fast mom oh my god'. "I don't really know what took place", he said.

"The first thing that I did was feel guilty", she said.

Police confirm one person was taken to the hospital following the shooting, the extent of the victim's injuries is unknown.

"I am heartbroken to hear that we have lost a student to school violence in one of our schools".

CMS does not have metal detectors in school, nor does it perform searches on students. And today, that simply wasn't enough'.
