Southwest Missouri teen shoots classmate in high school parking lot
AVA, Mo. (AP) — Police say a teenager has wounded another teen and then killed himself before dawn in a high school parking lot in southwest Missouri.
Ava police Sgt. Tim Stuart says a caller reported around 1:45 a.m. Monday that someone was possibly headed to the Ava High School parking lot with a gun. He says one teen fired three shots at another teen in the parking lot before fatally shooting himself.
Stuart says the wounded teen was taken to a hospital for surgery and is reportedly in stable condition. Stuart says both individuals are male and graduated from the school earlier this year.
