Reportedly many students called 911 after it occurred. Dispatchers to the scene said that one person has been injured in the shooting, that person being the alleged shooter himself. Students say that the student took out a gun and then shot himself. It is said that the shooter did not harm or threaten any other of his classmates. The injured student was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where his current status is unknown.
