Ohio school district welcomes students back after shootings

Associated Press

MADISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Students have returned to school in a southwest Ohio district two days after authorities say a 14-year-old boy shot students in a cafeteria.

Madison Local Schools officials say staff members have joined students on their bus rides Wednesday morning and have given them a first-day-of-school style welcome at the campus just west of Middletown where some 1,600 students from pre-K through grade 12 attend. Police are on hand and crisis counselors are being made available in the schools.

There’s no immediate word on attendance figures.

Authorities say two students were shot on Monday and two others hurt, possibly by shrapnel or while running away.

The 14-year-old shooting suspect remains in juvenile detention after denying the charges in a brief court hearing Tuesday.
