The male student who was shot died at a hospital, Tyrrell said. "But we're also sorry for the young person who thought the only way to solve this problem was with a gun".

"I am heartbroken to hear about today's school violence that has taken the life of a high school student in Matthews, and my family is praying for this community". We do not have metal detectors in our schools.

Families were told they could pick up their children but that students were free to stay on campus as classes would proceed for those remaining. "And what makes it doubly worse is it was one of our students who was the shooter". We do not search our students on the way into school. "There were many kids in the hallways when this took place".

Students hold candles during a vigil at Butler High School on Monday night. "This is a very sad day here in Matthews". During the confusion, many students texted their parents, knowing only that there was an active shooter on campus. I have been in touch with local officials to offer condolences and state support as needed.

"And we just didn't have that information until after it had happened", he said.


"There were many kids in the hallway when this happened", said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools issued a statement, saying the student was shot at Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina, about 12 miles southeast of Charlotte.

The victim has been taken to Carolinas Medical Center-Main. The campus has been secured by law enforcement, no immediate danger exists and an investigation continues. I will call soon with an update.

Two other police officers, including a school resource officer directing traffic in front of the school, entered the school within minutes, according to Tyrrell.

Thirty-one people were killed in those shootings, including 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida and 10 at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
