    Authorities in Ohio responded to reports that a student pulled a gun and shot himself inside a classroom Monday morning, 10TV reports.
    Administrators placed La Salle High School in Cincinnati on lockdown and all students were escorted to the gymnasium following the incident, according to WKRC. There is currently no active threat.
    The Hamilton County sheriff's office said that the student was rushed to a hospital with a self-inflicted wound, according to the Associated Press.
    More from the Associated Press:
    By DAN SEWELLCINCINNATI — A student at an all-male parochial high school pulled out a gun in a classroom Monday morning and shot himself in an apparent suicide attempt, police said.
    The youth was taken to a hospital, and there appeared to be no threat to other students at La Salle High School, a private school west of Cincinnati that was immediately put on lockdown as a precaution, police said.
    At around 8 a.m., "a student produced a gun inside one of the classrooms and shot himself, and we're dealing with that now," Green Township Police Chief Bart West told reporters. School officials said the shooting was during the first class period of the day.
    West said the student apparently was trying to kill himself, but he had no other information on why he fired the shot. He said authorities weren't aware of any threats made concerning the school or any other students. Authorities said all other students were safe.
    Students, some in tears, gathered in the school gym, and school officials said they were organizing an orderly dismissal as parents came to pick them up.
    A school official said counselors were meeting with students, and officials were talking to students to try to learn more about the student who fired the shot.
    "We just ask that you pray for him and his family," said Greg Tankersley, La Salle's director of community development. "It's a tragic situation for this young man."
    He said the youth was "fighting for his life." A message was left at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center about the student's condition.
    The Roman Catholic Archdiocese sent additional counselors to the school, he said, and a priest went to the hospital where the student was taken. Tankersley said he wouldn't release other information about the student at this point.
    In the aftermath of last year's fatal shootings of three students in Chardon High School in northeast Ohio and December's Sandy Hook Elementary shooting rampage in Connecticut, most schools have taken steps to increase security. In Ohio, that's included taking shooting prevention and response training courses offered by the state attorney general and updating safety procedures with police.
    "We always have concerns about school security," West said, but he added that La Salle "did an excellent job" in responding Monday. He said township police had met recently with school officials to review their safety plan.
    "We're going to go back and look at everything," Tankersley replied when asked about a gun getting into the school. But he added that Monday's top priority was the condition of the wounded student and the well-being of the others.


    We need to put prayers back in...Wait never mind.

    The main thing is that how that person bring that weapon inside the school.Its mean they don't have a proper security system that deal with these things.So the school admin is also responsible for that.

    Thank you, at last someone gets it! Since 9/11 no man has been able to get a weapon onto an airplane because of the excellent airport security. I simply fail to understand why we can't have airport-level security in schools. And kindergartens. And cinema halls. And grocery stores. And offices. And parks. And the beach. And buses.

    And homes.

    We don't need security, we simply need prayers! This is what happens when we push away gods from schools!
