Student shot at Kentucky school is recovering

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville police say a student shot at a high school remained hospitalized, but is recovering from non-life threatening injures.

Spokesman Dwight Mitchell said on Wednesday that the 15-year-old was "doing fine" at University Hospital. A 16-year-old has been charged with assault, wanton endangerment and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. He is also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon on school property and tampering with physical evidence.

The teen was being housed in the Jefferson County Youth Detention Center on Wednesday, a day after he was arrested following a report of shots fired at Fern Creek Traditional High School.

The shooting prompted the evacuation of the 1,400-student school Tuesday afternoon.

Police have not said what prompted the incident. Students returned to class Wednesday.
