A student was reported injured following shots fired during lunchtime at Cape Fear High School in Fayetteville.
The high school was placed on lockdown and parents told to stay away until the scene is cleared by law enforcement. Neighboring Mac Williams Middle School was also locked down, with no students allowed in or out.
Sheriff Earl "Moose" Butler said a female student was shot with what appeared to be a small-caliber bullet. She has been transported to a nearby hospital. Butler said no gun has been recovered and no arrests made.
Assistant Superintendent Theresa Perry said parents would be advised later in the afternoon as to when they could pick up their children.
