Teacher Shot Outside Miami-Area High School

MIAMI (AP) -- Three suspects are in custody, in connection with the shooting of a teacher outside a high school in the Miami area.

The teacher had been taking a cigarette break across the street from the school during lunch, when a school spokesman says he was confronted by another man who tried to rob him.

Police say he was shot in the upper torso and is in critical condition.

Before the arrests, a group of SWAT officers was seen entering an apartment complex near the school.

Elementary, middle and senior high schools in Carol City were on lockdown for more than two hours after the shooting, but the lockdown has now been lifted.
