School worker shot during teenagers’ fight in St. Paul
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A St. Paul school worker is recovering after she was shot in the ear during a fight between two groups of teenagers.
The Pioneer Press reports the fight took place at Washington Technology Magnet School around 3:30 p.m. Friday. According to police, school workers were trying to break up the fight and told one group to leave school property.
As the group left, shots were fired toward the other group and a bullet grazed a female school staff member’s earlobe. Medics treated her at the scene.
The St. Paul school district said in a statement that that the school was locked down following reports of shots fired near the facility. Investigators say they haven’t determined whether the teens involved in the fight were students at the school.
