Suspect Arrested In Killing Of Fellow Student At High School

Tacoma, Wash. (AP) -- Police in Tacoma, Washington, have arrested a high school student in the shooting death of another student this morning in a hallway at the school.

The shooting took place as classes were about to start at Foss High School. Police are trying to figure out what prompted the attack.

They say the suspect fled the school shortly after the attack, and was captured about two hours later without a fight. They say he was found wandering in a neighborhood a few miles from the school.

A 14-year-old says she was in the lunchroom, waiting for the bell to ring, when the shots were fired. She says everyone was yelling for people to go to the gym.

Another student says he thought he heard fireworks, and then he saw someone on the ground, and saw the blood.
