14-year-old shooter dead; Five reportedly shot at Cleveland high school

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND - At least four people were shot by a 14-year-old suspect at a Cleveland high school Wednesday, authorities told WKYC-TV. Sources told WKYC that the suspected shooter is dead.

Police said the shootings occured at SuccessTech Academy on the third and fifth floors, WEWS-TV reported. At least two of the victims were teachers and three were taken to MetroHealth Center, WKYC reported. No other details on their condition was available.

Mayor Frank Jackson later said that the school had been secured, although police were searching floor by floor.

The security guard was on vacation, WKYC reported, and two other full time security guards had been laid off in recent years.

Parents wait anxiously Students stood outside the building many in tears and on cell phones. Family members also stood outside, anxiously waiting for their children to be released.

One student at SuccessTech Academy said she heard the principal say "Code Blue" over the public address system, and the students started running. Doneisha LeVert said she hid in a closet with some of her friends.

Ronnell Jackson, 15, said he saw a shooter running down the hall and ducked out the door.

"He was about to shoot me but I got out just in time," he said. "He was aiming at me ... I got out just in time," Jackson said.

Tammy Mundy, 38, who has a son and daughter at the school, told The Plain Dealer of Cleveland that her daughter called when the shooting started.

"She said, 'Mom they're shooting in here, kids are running out, I'm hiding in the closet,"' Mundy told the newspaper.

Then she called her 18-year-old son, Darnell Rodgers, on his cell phone, and he told her he had been shot in the arm.

"He said, 'Mom, I got shot,"' Mundy told the newspaper.

Police shut down several nearby roads because of the shooting, WKYC reported.
