A head teacher has been shot at a high school in the US state of Wisconsin and a male student has been taken into custody, reports say.
Officials said the student entered the Weston School in Cazenovia at 0800 local time (1300 GMT) and shot Principal John Klang several times.
Mr Klang's condition was said to be critical. The motive for the attack was not immediately known.
All students were safely evacuated, a police official said.
Capt Michael Haifemann of the Sauk County sheriff's department said that shots were fired as people tried to restrain the attacker.
"All the children in the school were safe and none was harmed," he said.
