Cathedral High School student apologizes after shooting himself on school grounds

A  high school student was hospitalized after shooting himself in the abdomen outside Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, U.S., according to the Indianapolis Star

Police and school officials said that it was an isolated case and that no other students were in danger at the time.

School principal David Worland told the newscast that a male student had called the school switchboard operator around 2.15 p.m. EDT and warned them he was going to hurt himself. An emergency crew arrived and quickly found the boy at a gazebo, about 150 feet from the main building.

Worland said he was able to speak with the injured student after emergency personnel found him and the youngster confessed he was “embarrassed and very apologetic” and that he “couldn’t have picked a worse day to be doing something like this.”
