One student killed, one wounded in shooting near Minnesota school
At least one student has died and another has been injured in a shooting recorded on the sidewalk of a school in Richfield, in the state of Minnesota, located in the north of the United States.
The incident occurred around noon (local time) outside the South Education Center school, as detailed to journalists by the city’s police chief, Jay Henthorne.
The cause of the shooting is still under investigation, while Henthorne himself has reported that the suspects have fled the scene of the crime, according to the US network ABC.
According to the CBS network, the school, along with other educational centers in the area, have closed their doors.
