RED LAKE, Minn. (AP) - Several people were shot, and some killed, on Monday at Red Lake High School, the FBI reported.
The FBI didn't say how many people had been killed or wounded, and didn't release any other details.
Tom Lyons, chief deputy for Beltrami County, said as many as 14 people were injured in the shooting, which happened around 3 p.m. Lyons said a suspect was in custody, but he had no other details.
Four victims were being treated at North Country Regional Hospital in Bemidji, said Sherri Birkeland, the hospital's vice president of development and planning. She had no specific information on the victims or the shooting.
Other victims were expected at MeritCare Hospital in Fargo, N.D., said an administrator who declined to give her name.
Audrey Thayer, who lives in Bemidji and works as a researcher for the American Civil Liberties Union's Minneosta chapter, said the reservation was locked down by police with roadblocks. "They have got it closed off," she said.
It was the second major school shooting in Minnesota in recent years. In September 2003, two students were shot at Rocori High School in central Minnesota.
Aaron Rollins, 17, and Seth Bartell, 14, both died from their wounds - Rollins that day and Bartell 16 days later. Fellow student John Jason McLaughlin, 15 at the time of the shootings, awaits trial in the case.
The Red Lake Indian Reservation is in far northern Minnesota, about 130 miles north of Brainerd.
