Shooting at Carver High School in Winston-Salem, NC

UPDATE: Suspect in custody after Carver High School shooting:

Carver High School Shooting: Suspect In Custody In Winston-Salem, North Carolina:


Today a shooting occurred at Carver High School in Winston-Salem, North Carolina during a fire drill. A 15-year-old male student was stuck in the neck and shoulder but is said to have non-life threatening injuries.

The shooting took place outside of the school during the aforementioned fire drill.

The shooter is in custody but no further details about them have been given at this time.

If I had to hazard a guess I would say that this sounds like a heat of the moment kind of shooting rather than something that was planned but we’ll see how true that is once more details become publicly available.

UPDATE 9/3/2013: The suspect’s name is Christopher Lamont Richardson Jr. and reports say that there was an ongoing issue between Richardson and the victim. What that issue was has not been made public, to my knowledge, yet.
