Florida Middle School Shooting

A middle school was evacuated Friday morning after a wounded pupil barricaded himself in a bathroom, possibly with a gun, authorities in the Orlando suburb said.

Sheriff's deputies said it appeared the boy had a handgun but that had not been confirmed. He was shot, but the wound was not self-inflicted, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said. Officials did not say who they believe shot the boy.

The sheriff's office said it has been negotiating with the boy to surrender.

All the students, teacher and staff at Milwee Middle School were evacuated and are safe, deputies said.
