Your 'School Shooting of the Day'
Ho-hum, just another one. This time at charter high school in North Philly area. Two students, a guy and a girl, possibly both 15, shot in gym--or cafeteri--at close of day, rushed to hospital. Reports suggest police still pursuing gunman, likely a student. A Twitter report has a "suspect" stopped on a street nearby. Police tweeted: "SHOOTER - Turn yourself in. Get it over with now." UPDATE: Police say shooter in custody, found near home, but gun missing. -- G.M.
