Two students and a school janitor were injured during a shooting incident at a middle school in Idaho on Thursday.
Police were called to the school around 9:15 a.m. Multiple law enforcement agencies were on scene.
Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to a call at Rigby Middle School in the small town of Ridgy, which is about 95 miles southwest of Yellowstone National Park.
“Today we had the worst nightmare a school district could encounter. We had a school shooting here at Rigby Middle School,” Jefferson School District Superintendent Chad Martin said. “What we know so far is the shooter has been apprehended. There is no further threat to the students.”
According to ABC News, this is Idaho’s second school shooting with the first occurring in 1999 when a student fired a shotgun several times at a high school.
Authorities said a male student has been taken into custody and none of the victims’ injuries appear to be life-threatening.
