A student has been confirmed dead after a shooting at Butler High School Monday morning. A student, who was not identified, was shot and taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Police believe the shooting at the school was an isolated incident and say there is no continued threat. The suspect was taken into custody and questioned by police.

"The single shooter has been apprehended and the weapon is in the possession of law enforcement", said the CMS Facebook post. "What makes it doubly hard is that it was one of our students who was the shooter".

"We don't actively search every bad that comes into school each and every day". Another witness, Lester Henline, a senior at Butler, told WBTV, "We heard a bank and we seen them starting to fight".

But remarkably Celtic had the experience of Sinclair left on the bench and he was only used as a second-half substitute. Captain Scott Brown misses out with a calf strain while Leigh Griffiths and Tom Rogic are also suffering from injury.

He added that the district may discover that it "didn't intervene quickly enough in a bullying situation".

It's unclear what led to the shooting.

But Tracy O. Russ, the chief communications officer for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, told TIME that the decision to keep the school open was made to provide students with a safe place to stay until their families could come get them. "We're incredibly sad, and we're sorry for this family", Wilcox said. "We will review procedures and security plans and perhaps will do things that are a little more aggressive". Lockdown was apparently lifted around 9:15 a.m., and students streamed out, many crying and hugging parents.

The male student was taken to a nearby hospital following the shooting at Butler High School and died after surgery. Students were allowed to go to their normally scheduled second class, he said.
