The student was shot by a fellow student during a fight in a crowded school hallway Monday and died at a hospital, officials said.

The suspect was taken into custody and questioned by police. They believe it to be an isolated incident and the scene has been secured.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said the shooting appears to have stemmed from a case of bullying "that escalated out of control". Maybe we didn't intervene early enough in a bullying situation.

"This is really sad to see someone go that ... has been your friend, for I don't know how many years", Sanchez said. "It was that closeness. just being scared and you could never think it was going to happen here".

Despite the unemployment rate at a record low and rising wages, he admitted that the inflationary pressures aren't that strong. After the financial crisis erupted in 2008, the Fed kept rates at historically low levels to revive the ailing economy.

Law enforcement said students who drove to school Monday will not be allowed to get their vehicles from the parking lot yet.

Wilcox said "dozens if not hundreds" of students witnessed the shooting before fleeing in panic.

"I think it's fair to say that more lives than just two have been changed forever", Wilcox said. While officials later said the shooting followed a fight between two students, the students in the hallway assumed they were all potential victims. "We will review procedures and security plans and perhaps will do things that are a little more aggressive".

Parents were alerted to the incident via a robo call issued by CMS.

The decision to continue with classes after a fatal shooting was met with skepticism by many on social media, with some wondering if a fatal school shooting had become so "normalized" that the incident didn't even prompt a school closing. WSOC reported live that angry parents were gathering around the campus, despite being told they were to wait for updates at nearby Elevation Church on East Independence Boulevard. The lockdown at the school was lifted around 9:15 a.m.

According to CMS, classes will proceed Monday for students who remain on campus.
