One Dead, One Wounded in Midland School Shooting

By  | 

A gunman shot and wounded his teenage ex-girlfriend in a high school parking lot Wednesday, before fatally shooting himself, police said.
The 17-year-old girl was transported to a local hospital, and her condition was not known, Midland Police Chief James St. Louis said at an afternoon news conference.
The shooter, he said, was a 17-year-old from Coleman and was dead on the scene. He was not a student at the school. The girl, whose name was not released, is a student at H.H. Dow High School, but was not in class Wednesday morning. She is from Midland.
St. Louis said the gunman called her at home and asked her to meet him at the school. After a conversation in the parking lot, he pulled a gun out of a backpack and shot her four times before turning the gun on himself.
The school, which is located about 100 miles northwest of Detroit, was locked down, officials said. Police were called around 11 a.m.
Dow High, which is named after the founder of chemical giant Dow Chemical Co., has 1,500 students.
