NC - Matthews Butler High School On Lockdown After Shooting (Video)

The Butler High School in Matthews, North Carolina was locked down this morning after a shooting. The information so far is that one student shot at another one and has been apprehended. The weapon was seized by police and the shooter is in custody. The high school counts as many as 2,000 students.

Parents of the children got a text message from the Butler High School early this morning, saying: “This is Principal John LeGrand calling with an important message about our Butler High School Community. Butler High School is on lockdown after a student was shot within our building this morning. The single shooter has been apprehended and the weapon is in possession of law enforcement.”

The Matthews Police Department afterwards released a statement an hour ago: “We have responded to a shooting at Butler High School this morning. There is one student that has been shot that was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries at this time.”

Parents were frantic as many of them received texts from their children informing them about the shooting. A mother showed on NBC Charlotte the texts she had just received: “Mom oh God somebody in here with a gun. We are all running for our lives. I never ran so fast mom, oh my God.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">[WATCH]: This is what the area around Butler HS looks like now. Lots of police on scene.

Police have now asked the parents to go to Elevation Church before the students are released from school.

As we get closer to the Mid-Term Elections I expect to see more and more of this and other Issues that support the Socialist calls for restricting your freedoms and the Bill of Rights..

It is almost like a some kind of plan is in motion.

They would never bomb themselves, so when that did not get the desired effect…

It`s back to killing more innocents.

Guns in gun free zones & law abiding citizens getting shot & killed.

While the lawless act with impunity, Gun laws or not.

They do as they please.
