(Green Township, OH) --The campus of LaSalle High School on North Bend was locked down this morning after reports of a shooting. Police responded to the scene shortly after 9 on news that there was a single gunshot and a person down.
As Newsradio 700WLW first reported, a student atempted suicide in class during first bell. The student has not been identified and is at University Hospital. No other students were injured and no one else was threatened with harm during this incident.
This is the second tragedy to rock the LaSalle campus this year connected to gun violence. In February, a student was shot and killed in a drug deal that went bad.
