The shooter who wounded three people at a school in the United States was a sixth-grader

The shooter who wounded three people at an Idaho school turned out to be a sixth-grader; she was disarmed and detained by a teacher, the Associated Press reports, citing local law enforcement.

Earlier it was reported that a shooting occurred at a high school in the city of Rigby, because of which three people were injured – two students and one adult.

The Jefferson County sheriff’s Office said at a news conference that the girl pulled a gun from her backpack and fired several shots both inside the school building and outside. One of the teachers managed to disarm her and hold her until the guards arrived.

Authorities are investigating the motive for the attack, as well as how the gun got into the hands of a sixth-grade student.
