Injured, Suspect In Custody In Ocala School Shooting

Forest High School

One person has been injured in a school shooting at an Ocala, Florida, high school, CNN reports.

Forest High School in Marion County, Florida as seen from Google Street View in 2014. The person's identity was not released and investigators have not given details about a suspected motive.

The student was shot in the ankle, said Kevin Christian, Marion Public Schools spokesman.

The identities of both students were not immediately available. The school remained on lockdown and students were being taken to another location at about 10:30 a.m.

The shooting happened on the morning where, for the third month in a row, students across the country and locally are expected to leave their classrooms Friday in a gun-control protest and memorial to the victims of school shootings. The students were being transported to the church by bus.

Cash shortage will be resolved today, says SBI chief
A major chunk of Rs 2,000 notes have disappeared, with a high rate of withdrawals between the October-March period. However, the government is yet to ascertain the exact reasons behind the sudden jump in the demand.

The suspect is in custody and one person is injured, according to deputies.

School was canceled for the day after the shooting and parents were told pick up their students at First Baptist Church of Ocala.

Citizens are asked to avoid the area.

Please do NOT come to Forest High School to pick up your children.

Parkland students are participating in the national walkout.
