The suspected gunman is hospitalised in critical condition who used the last bullet from a 0.45-caliber pistol on himself, authorities said. However, detectives offered no immediate motive between the subject and the victims other than to say that they were all students at the high school together.

Students scrambled for safety amid the chaos, and frantic parents urgently sought to reunite with their children.

The fatalities include a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy. Two girls, ages 14 and 15, and a 14-year-old boy remain hospitalized, officials said.
