Wisconsin — An emergency management official in Wisconsin says an armed student has taken hostages inside a high school classroom in Marinette.

Marinette County emergency management director Eric Burmeister says a high school administrator called authorities after 3 p.m. Monday to say an armed student had burst into a classroom. Burmeister says he's unsure how many people are in the classroom and no injuries have been reported.

Choral teacher Bonita Weydt told The Associated Press that school ended about 10 minutes later and the principal told her to leave the building immediately.
