MINNEAPOLIS -- Red Lake High School Principal Chris Dunshee, who became the face of the district after a student went on a shooting rampage last year, has gone on medical leave.

Dunshee, 58, has been out since the end of last month. He said Thursday his cardiologist suggested he take some time off. Dunshee also said he had been seeing a therapist and that some of his health issues might be related to post-traumatic stress.

It's not the first time Dunshee has had health issues since the attack. He suffered a mild heart attack about a month after the shootings and was hospitalized briefly. He said his situation will be reassessed in April.
