A student shot and killed an assistant principal and seriously wounded two other administrators at a high school Tuesday, officials said. The student was arrested. The motive for the shooting at Campbell County High School, 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Knoxville, was not immediately known, Sheriff Ron McClellan told WVLT-TV. Assistant Principal Ken Bruce was killed, according to state Education Department spokeswoman Rachel Woods. Principal Gary Seale, who was shot while trying to take the student into custody, was reported in serious condition, and Assistant Principal Jim Pierce in critical condition. Parents rushed to the 1,400-student school to take their children home. The school was locked down after the shooting, and students were evacuated and loaded onto buses. "They are searching each student as they are getting on the buses," said Roger Wallace, a driver at a pizza restaurant nearby.
