A high school Freshman brought a gun to class today and shot himself in the small southeastern North Dakota town of Fairmount.

The school was put into lockdown for about an hour after the boy shot himself in front of his classmates around 8:30 this morning. Kindergarteners through 12th graders were then sent home and the school called in counselors. The teen is at St. Francis hospital in Breckenridge. The hospital is not releasing condition updates on him because he is under 18. Kay Cooley has more.
