MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Police say the teenager believed to have shot a fellow student at a central Indiana middle school has been arrested and is being questioned at the county jail.
State police Sgt. Curt Durnil says officers arrested the 15-year-old boy without incident on the south side of Martinsville about an hour after the Friday morning shooting at Martinsville West Middle School. He says no one else was believed involved in the shooting.
Durnil says Morgan County prosecutors were reviewing possible criminal charges against the teenager.
Police say 15-year-old Chance Jackson was shot in the stomach. His family says he was in stable condition after surgery at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
Police said they didn’t immediately know a motive for the shooting.
