1 injured at Mt. Tabor High School

At least one student was injured and rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound after a shooting inside a high school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, on Wednesday, local officials said.

There was one gunshot victim at Mount Tabor High School, Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough Jr. said Wednesday afternoon in a press briefing.

The shooter was not in custody and was not in the building, he said. Winston-Salem police officers were "actively seeking" the shooter.

Superintendent Tricia McManus said other schools in the area were also locked down "because of the search."

The shooting happened around noon, Kimbrough said. He said it was not immediately clear what led to the shooting, or if the shooter was also a student. As far as officials know, there was only one shooter, Kimbrough said.

There were two deputies inside the building when the shooting took place, Kimbrough said. Additional law enforcement was at the building "within minutes," McManus said.

"It's a sad day in Forsyth County," Kimbrough said.

Kimbrough said he did not know the victim's condition. He said EMS tended to "students who, quite naturally, were panicked by this."
