  • FAIRMOUNT, N.D. (AP) — Residents of the small southeastern North Dakota community of Fairmount are rattled after a high school boy brought a gun to class and shot himself.
    Mayor Jon Nelk calls it "a tragic day" that will shake up the town of 370 people for a long time.
    Principal Jay Townsend says the boy survived what officials believe was a suicide attempt Thursday morning. He says the boy did not threaten anyone else.
    The freshman boy was taken to a hospital in Breckenridge, Minn. Townsend says the boy was coherent and is expected to recover.
    Townsend says the K-12 school has about 110 students. The school was put into lockdown for about an hour after the incident, then students were allowed to leave with their parents.
