Police: 1 Student Hurt, High School Evacuated In Shooting On Campus In Louisville

Louisville School Shooting
Louisville police say they have arrested a juvenile in the shooting of a high school student that prompted a school-wide lockdown and evacuation.

Sgt. Phil Russell says the alleged shooter was picked up about three hours after a Fern Creek Traditional High School student was wounded Tuesday afternoon. The shooting prompted a lockdown and later the evacuation of the 1,400-student school.

Russell did not immediately release any information about the person arrested or what motivated the incident.
