.....And the School Shootings Begin

A 16 year old boy was shot today at school. The shooting occurred just before noon today. Bendale which is located in the Midland and Lawrence area went on lockdown for several hours as police scouted the area for suspects. Parents rushed frantically to the school worried it may be their child that was shot.

The teen was reportedly discovered near the pool inside the building bleeding from at least one gunshot wound to the chest. His injuries are life threatening and he remains in critical condition. The incident took place in a large green space behind the parking lot at the school and the victim may have staggered back inside.
The gunman and at least two others ran off. Police are sure they didn't go back inside but they don't know if the shooter was also a Bendale student.

An early description suggests the suspect is
18-19,
5'8"-5'10"
Dark skinned
He was wearing a cloth hat and a back pack.
