Two Teens Shot at Frederick High School in Maryland.


No suspect information has been released after two teenagers were shot outside Frederick High School in Maryland Wednesday evening.

The shots rang out around 8 p.m. outside the school’s gymnasium along Carroll Parkway, where two junior varsity basketball games were being hosted.

“Gunshots going off around a gym packed with kids… You can imagine, everybody’s running,” a police officer at the scene said.

Two teens suffered non-life threatening injuries.

“I heard five shots really quickly. Not quite automatic, but really fast shots,” witness and Frederick resident Tom Thompson said.

Police canvassed the school and neighborhood for suspects. Parents waited outside a nearby bowling alley for their children to be released following a lockdown, which ended about two hours after the shooting.

“Just want to see my son and make sure he’s straight and everything is good … make sure his mind is in the right place,” parent Shawn Rodriguez said.

No suspect or motive information has been released.
