The shooting happened at Butler High School located at 1810 Matthews-Mint Hill Road around 7:15 a.m. just as school began.

Within five minutes, a teacher notified school officials that she was with the student who committed the shooting, Tyrrell said, adding that the teacher said the student admitted to the shooting and was ready to surrender. Investigators have the weapon used. Police described the shooting as an "isolated incident", and school officials said shortly after the shooting was reported that there was no further danger. Initial reports indicate that the conflict started with bullying that spiraled out of control, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox.

One student said that he was in the cafeteria eating breakfast when he witnessed the fight that led to the shooting.

"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".

In a statement released to the station, North Carolina State Superintendent Mark Johnson said "I am heartbroken to hear that we have lost a student to school violence in one of our schools".

"As we get more information it is critical that we come together to do everything in our power to prevent these incidents from happening and keep guns out of our schools", Cooper said.

Surveillance video shows the two students getting into a fight before the shooting, Tyrrell said.

Families were told they could pick up their children but that students were free to stay on campus as classes would proceed for those remaining.

Many initially gathered at the nearby Elevation Church to pray after the incident as they waited to hear news. When they arrived to find their children absent, dozens of parents took matters into their own hands, marching over a highway overpass and crossing police barricades to assemble at the doors of the school.

"We don't actively search every bad that comes into school each and every day".
