Hamilton County police have verified that a student shot himself in a classroom inside La Salle High School this morning.
The student has been taken to University Hospital; his identity and condition are unknown at this time.
The school had been on lockdown, but that order is now lifted, and all of the students were taken to the gym.
Nearly 20,000 of the 30,000 deaths from guns in the United States in 2010 were suicides, according to the most recent figures from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The national suicide rate has climbed by 12 percent since 2003, and suicide is the third-leading cause of death for teenagers.
