School shooting in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Oct. 10 — Disgruntled about having been suspended on Monday after a fight, a 14-year-old student shot and injured two students and two teachers at a downtown Cleveland high school on Wednesday before fatally shooting himself, the authorities said.

The gunman was Asa H. Coon, a freshman at the school, SuccessTech Academy. Around 1:15, Coon arrived at the school armed with two handguns, and walked up two flights of stairs before opening fire in a crowded hallway on the third floor. Within minutes, the principal announced a "code blue" over the intercom, leading some to flee into the halls, while others hid in closets and under desks.
