2 injured in Newport News, Virginia


At least two people were shot and two others injured Monday in a high school shooting in Newport News, Va., Police said.

Two people were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds that are not considered life threatening, Newport News Police Chief Steve Drew said.

One person had a “sprained or broken arm” and a person with asthma was taken to hospital with “breathing problems,” he said. A fifth person may have gone straight to the hospital, he added.

The suspect was not in custody and knew the victims, police said.

Drew said police believed “there had been some sort of altercation.”

The students were evacuated and sent to nearby tennis courts, where parents were invited to meet them. Videos shared on social media showed students and adults gathered near the fences. Mental health counselors were on site.
