Two North Carolina schools locked down after shooting report

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina (Reuters) - Two schools in Fayetteville, North Carolina, have been locked down after a shooting report, officials said on Monday.

School officials said one student was injured at Cape Fear High School while students were outside for lunch but could not confirm the cause or source of the injury.

"We have gone into code red lock-down until we can determine the cause and the source," Cumberland County Schools Assistant Superintendent Theresa Perry said in statement.

Perry said police and paramedics were on scene and asked parents to stay away because students could not be released while the schools were locked down.
