March 25, 2011

A teenage boy was shot at a central Indiana middle school shortly before classes began Friday and a fellow student is in custody, state police said. The victim and a 15-year-old suspect are both students at Martinsville West Middle School, where the shooting took place. The victim was airlifted to Methodist Hospital about 30 miles away in Indianapolis and is “assumed to be in serious condition,” police said. The suspect had been suspended or expelled from school earlier in the week.
