A 14-year-old boy held students at a West Virginia high school hostage with a pistol on Tuesday before releasing his captives and surrendering, NBC News reported.
No one was hurt in the incident which began at around 1:30 p.m. at Philip Barbour High School, about 30 miles southeast of Clarksburg, state police said.
The teen student held 27 other students and a teacher in a second-floor classroom but released them after police began negotiations, state police said.
The boy, who was not identified by officials, surrendered to authorities and was being evaluated at a local hospital Tuesday evening, police said.
