Another school shooting: Police say two students were shot today inside a Philadelphia high school, reports AP. Authorities say a male and female student were each shot in the arm this afternoon at the Delaware Valley Charter School in north Philadelphia. The injuries weren't life-threatening. One student was in custody and another is expected to surrender soon. NBC10 says it's not yet clear whether the shooting in the school gym was intentional, but a police official tells the station that it was captured on video. The video reportedly shows a group of teens together in the gym when the gunfire breaks out. (Read more school shooting stories.)
