SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities say a shooting at a Washington state elementary school appears to have left a third-grade student with a gunshot wound in her abdomen.
Police say the injured girl has been airlifted to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center and that a third-grade boy has been detained.
Bremerton police and emergency crews were dispatched to the school at around 1:30 p.m. in response to a call that a student was shot and injured by another student. Authorities say a firearm was found in a classroom.
The Bremerton Schools superintendent's office says the school was locked down after the shooting, but the lock down was lifted a short while later.
Live television news footage showed students leaving the school. Police say parents were being allowed to pick up their kids on foot.
