Mexico school shooting

An eleven year old boy has opened fire in a school in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila.

According to the international media, 11-year-old boy entered the school with two weapons and opened fire in which reportedly a female teacher killed and later the shooter had killed himself.
Police has cordoned off the area and wounded were shifted to the nearby hospital.
The Director of Municipal Public Safety, Primo Francisco García, confirmed to local media the death of a teacher and a student.
According to the school’s official website, the school includes students from kindergarten through high school.

Police chief Maurilio Ochoa told the media that six people had been wounded – five schoolchildren and a teacher – with two in a “delicate” condition in hospital.

Ochoa said the shooter was believed to have entered his school with two weapons: a small-calibre handgun and a high-calibre weapon. The boy’s parents and grandmother, with whom he lived, had said they had no idea how he acquired the guns.

“This is really regrettable,” Ochoa said, as anxious parents gathered outside the school’s entrance. He suggested backpack searches might be needed to prevent future tragedies.
