Teens to return to Ohio school day after shooting

CINCINNATI (AP) - Students will return for a prayer service before classes at an all-male Catholic high school in Ohio the day after police said a student shot himself in a classroom.

A hospital spokeswoman says the unidentified student remains in critical condition Tuesday, after an apparent suicide attempt in La Salle High School west of Cincinnati. Police say there was no threat to other students or staff, but the school was locked down and students later dismissed.

A school spokesman says counselors are available and officials feel it's important to bring students back together at the school.

Green Township police call the weapon a semi-automatic handgun. They were investigating how the student obtained the gun and took it into school.

School officials say he's an honors student who's performed extensive community service.
