Youth shoots himself


A 15-year-old student at Lake Clifton High School today shot himself in the leg with a gun that he apparently had smuggled into one of the school's buildings. No one else was injured.

The student was taken to Union Memorial Hospital, where his condition was unknown.

Police said the incident occurred about 8:45 a.m. Police could not say why the student brought the weapon to the northeast Baltimore school, nor had they recovered it immediately. Another student may have taken it off school grounds, they said.
