Four Students Injured after Ohio Student Opens Fire in Cafeteria

(CNN)Four students were injured and another was in custody Monday after a 14-year-old allegedly opened fire in an Ohio school cafeteria, authorities said.

Two of the victims were shot, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones told reporters. The other two were injured "either by shrapnel from the handgun or by injuries getting away from the active shooter," he said.

None of the injuries is believed to be life threatening.

The suspected shooter was taken into custody outside of the school.

Madison Local Schools said in an earlier Facebook post that three students had been hurt and all others were safe.

The shooting happened at Madison Junior-Senior High School in Middletown, Ohio.

"The crime scene is a large crime scene and it takes time to get the crime scene worked," Jones said. "The investigation is continuing as we go."
