One dead in Knoxville school shooting
A student in Knoxville, Tennessee opened fire on his campus Monday, wounding an officer before being shot by police.
The shooting broke out around 3:15 p.m. at Austin-East Magnet High School in the east of the city.
It's the latest in a string of shootings in the US since mid-March.
David Rausch, director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, told reporters Monday that the wounded officer had been taken to a local hospital for treatment.
"An officer returned fire. It was pronounced and the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. He has since been identified as a student in Austin East."
Austin-East was closed after the exchange of fire, and parents rushing to the scene were instructed to pick up their children at a back entrance.
The Austin East community was rocked by gun violence this year.
According to media reports, four other students at the school have been killed in shootings across the city in the past few months.
Monday's incident joins a growing list of mass shootings that rocked communities in Texas, Georgia, Colorado and California in the past month alone.
