Student shot dead at high school and classes resumed just a few hours later

A high school teenager has died after being shot by a classmate at a high school in North Carolina — and classes resumed just a few hours later.

The teenager was gunned down at Butler High School in Mathews, a small town about 35 kilometres southeast of Charlotte, North Carolina, local media reports.

The student was taken to hospital in critical condition but died later from their injuries.

The suspected shooter is in custody, and no one else was harmed during the incident.

Despite the traumatising morning, classes resumed as soon as a lockdown had been lifted. Parents were allowed to collect their children if they wished, and there were emotional scenes outside the school as shaken mums and dads got to hug their kids after the terrifying ordeal.

The shooting occurred two days after a gun massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue claimed the lives of 11 people.

Gunman Robert Bowers burst into the temple screaming “all Jews must die” before shooting at worshippers.
