The shooting in the hallway of Butler High School in Matthews stemmed from a fight between the victim and the suspect, said Matthews Police Capt. Stason Tyrrell.

Officials said the shooting happened in a main hallway after a fight between the suspect and victim.

The conflict between the shooter and his victim began with a bullying incident, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District said on Facebook that the weapon had been secured by law enforcement.

The male student who was shot died at a hospital, Tyrrell said.

"I am heartbroken to hear that we have lost a student to school violence in one of our schools". The Observer report adds that many parents descended on the school, demanding their children be allowed to leave.

The superintendent said the school will be closed on Tuesday.

"Our hearts are with the family, loved ones, friends and everyone affected by the tragedy which occurred this morning at Butler High School".

McKeithen was a 10th-grader at Butler High School in Matthews, southeast of Charlotte.

Wilcox said "dozens if not hundreds" of students witnessed the shooting before fleeing in panic. We do not have metal detectors in our schools. "Our schools and students rely on cooperation between and amongst and each other and today that simply wasn't enough". He said the disagreement occurred in a hallway and that there were "kids in the hallways when it took place". "But we are going to look into all those things, and we will do our best to make sure that this never happens again".

Guardians and parents were advised of the incident via email and telephone calls. Students were allowed to go to their normally scheduled second class, he said. "Law enforcement officers have secured the campus and an investigation by law enforcement continues". Five people were killed at school shootings in 2017 and two in 2016 nationwide, according to Post data.
