Five students were injured Monday morning when a shooter who was described as a classmate opened fire at an Ohio high school, an FBI spokeswoman said.
Special Agent Vicki Anderson said Monday the gunman was taken into custody near his car about a half a mile away from the high school.
A spokeswoman for the Cleveland Clinic said two students were taken to the clinic's Hillcrest Hospital in suburban Cleveland.
A spokeswoman for the Cleveland MetroHealth System says an three other students were taken to the Cleveland hospital.
There was no word on the extent of injuries.
Schools in the area were locked down.
Chardon is about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
A student who was just feet away when the gunman opened fire said an otherwise normal morning was interrupted by strange sounds in a hallway, and then the sight of the gunman beginning to shoot.
Heather Ziska says she was in the Chardon High School outside cafeteria Monday at about 7:30 a.m. when she and other students began hearing popping noises in a nearby hallway.
The 17-year-old junior says she then saw a boy with a gun whom she recognized as a fellow student come into the cafeteria and start shooting.
She says she and several others immediately ran outside, while other friends ran into a middle school and others locked themselves in a teachers' lounge.
Another student, senior Jonathan Sylak, was near the cafeteria when he heard loud popping noises followed by people screaming and beginning to run.
