CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say two of the four students injured in a fatal shooting at an Ohio high school are in critical condition. Police Chief Tim McKenna says the investigation into Monday's shooting at Chardon High School "is going to be very long."

Officials had said earlier that one student had died and four were injured. A teenager described as a bullied outcast was arrested shortly after the shooting.

A student who witnessed the attack says it appears the suspect targeted a group of students sitting in the cafeteria. Officials say they will focus in the next few days on grief counseling for survivors and families. Classes will be canceled Tuesday. A candlelight service is being planned for Tuesday evening at a church across from the school.

Police told local station WKYC that victims were found in three different places inside the school. Authorities say the alleged lone gunman is in custody. A spokesperson for the sheriff's office would not confirm whether the shooter is male or a student. Police told WKYC the gunman used a handgun.

Some students told Fox 8 News they saw two gunmen.

FBI agent Scott Wilson said after Monday morning's shooting that there was one suspected shooter. He wouldn't discuss the extent of the students' injuries.

According to WKBN.com, police scanner traffic is reporting three victims are in critical condition and one is stable. Medical helicopters are converging on the Wal-Mart in Chardon, where a landing zone has been set up.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported the shooting happened in the cafeteria, according to a waiting parent, Jessica Bryant, whose daughter had seen it and sent her a text message.

Another parent, Jeannette Roth, said her son told her the shooting happened while students were eating breakfast and waiting for first period. She told the paper a student "stood up and started shooting, and then it was chaos." Nearly 1,100 students attend Chardon High School.

Students fled and locked themselves in classrooms for safety.

Civil deputy Erin Knife, of the Geauga County Sheriff's Office, says the shooting was reported around 7:30 a.m.

Schools in the area are locked down.
   
Chardon is located about 30 miles east of Cleveland.
