Police say a student at Noblesville West Middle School is responsible for shooting a teacher and classmate Friday morning. "We have not received any information that this has been anything other than a communicated threat", Jowitt said.

The shooting at the 1,350-student school happened a day before everyone was headed for a three-day Memorial Day holiday weekend.

One student told News 8 that he heard several shots fired but did not know if they were fired inside or outside of the building.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said he had briefed Gov. Eric Holcomb as Holcomb returned from Europe.

Another student was being treated at Riverview Health in Noblesville with a fractured ankle. The school is on lockdown.
