UPDATE: 1 Child Injured, Kentucky High School Evacuated After on Campus Gun Scare

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Police say one child has been injured and a high school has been evacuated after a report of weapons seen on the campus in Louisville, Kentucky.

Spokeswoman Alicia Smiley says the child sustained non-life threatening injuries Tuesday. Smiley says a parent is with the child.

Smiley would not say if the child was a student or describe the nature of the injuries.

Television stations in Louisville showed lines of students from Fern Creek Traditional High School leaving the buildings and being escorted by police to a nearby softball field Tuesday afternoon.

Police cars surrounded the 91-year-old school in the southern part of the city.

Messages left by The Associated Press for a spokesman for Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Metro Police and MetroSafe, the city’s emergency management department, were not immediately returned.
