KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Knoxville Police said the victim of Thursday morning's shooting has died.
They also said the shooting was not random; instead, they do believe the victim was targeted specifically by the suspect.
Police say they've taken a suspect into custody after the shooting at Central High School was reported to police at about 8:10 Thursday morning.
Police spokesman Darryl DeBusk says police took a suspect into custody six minutes later near the school and recovered the gun.
A 16-year-old student was wounded and taken to a local hospital.
The school was placed on lockdown after the shooting. School officials were preparing to release students one classroom at a time, then bus them to a church so they could be picked up by their parents.
