As previously reported, a student at the all-male La Salle High School in Cincinnati attempted to take his own life today by way of a self-inflicted gunshot wound during the first class of the day.
According to reports, police have indicated that he did not threaten to harm other students.
The school has now issued the following statement on its site:
ALL LA SALLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE SAFE AND BEING DISMISSED INTO THE CUSTODY OF THEIR PARENTS DUE TO AN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE INVOLVING ONE STUDENT.
The student has not been identified, and his condition is unknown, as reporters wait to hear from hospital authorities. He was reportedly taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
