Student shot at North Carolina high school; shooter in custody, police say

A student was fatally shot by another teen at a North Carolina high school early Monday, authorities say. Matthews Police Captain Stason Tyrell said the school resource officer sent a command to lock the school down and within five to seven minutes were able to apprehend Cuffie, who had surrendered to a teacher and admitted to shooting McKeithen.

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

"This is believed to be an isolated incident and the scene is now being secured", police stated.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools issued a statement, saying the student was shot at Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina, about 12 miles southeast of Charlotte. "And what makes it doubly worse is it was one of our students who was the shooter".

According to an estimate by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, there are about 1.4 million transgender adults in the United States.

Officials said the shooting happened in a main hallway after a fight between the suspect and victim. "We will review procedures and security plans and perhaps will do things that are a little more aggressive". Butler, located in Matthews, has 2,000 students.

"Our goal was to ensure that students could remain on campus and safe until such time that transportation arrangements could be made by families", Russ said in an email.

Students said hundreds of concerned and shouting parents massed in front of the building, demanding that their children be allowed to leave. WSOC reported live that angry parents were gathering around the campus, despite being told they were to wait for updates at nearby Elevation Church on East Independence Boulevard. Classes were proceeding for students who remained on campus.
