Arkansas ‘Premeditated’ School Shooting

A 14-year-old student opened fire inside an Arkansas school on Monday, shooting and wounding a fellow eighth-grader in what appeared to be “a premeditated attack”, officials said.

The shooting happened about 09:15 at Prescott Junior High School in Prescott, Arkansas, about 80 km northeast of Texarkana, Arkansas. Police Chief Joseph Beavers said the suspect came to school with a concealed handgun, shot the other 14-year-old student in a school hallway, dropped the weapon and fled. He said the teen was quickly apprehended by school resource officers who responded within seconds.

“It appears this was a premeditated attack specifically targeting the injured student,” the Prescott School District said in a statement.

Beavers said the two students had argued over the weekend, but details about what led to that weren’t immediately clear.
