Twenty-four people held hostage at school by student

Twenty-three students and one teacher were held hostage at gunpoint by a student Monday at a high school in Marinette, Wisc., a town that borders Michigan's upper peninsula.

Zach campbell, one of the student hostages, said they class was watching a film before the gunman shot at the projector a little after 3 p.m.

According to the New York Times there were no demands made by the armed student, and there was no indication for why he took hostages.

Around 8 p.m. officers heard three gunshots before breaking down the classroom door. The 15-year-old gunman then shot himself, the LA Times reported.

All of the hostages made it out with no injures. The gunman was sent to a hospital and his condition was not immediately known.
