Two teenagers dead after shooting in western Minnesota
AMOR, Minn. — A 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy are both dead after a shooting at their home in western Minnesota.
The girl, who was a sophomore at Perham High School, was dead at the scene near Amor. KFGO-AM reports the boy was airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, N.D., where he died.
The Otter Tail County sheriff's office says injuries to one of the teens apparently were self-inflicted.
The Star Tribune reports all five schools in the Perham-Dent School District were put on lockdown Tuesday. Students were not able to leave and visitors could not enter.
Superintendent Tamara Uselman says the lockdown was needed to ensure the safety for "students in a fragile emotional state."
Names of the teens have not been released.
