A teenager brought two guns to his rural school and shot the principal to death Friday after a struggle with adults and other students, authorities said. The 15-year-old student, identified as Eric Hainstock, was taken into custody and charged with first-degree intentional homicide, the district attorney said. No one else was hurt. It was not clear why Hainstock opened fire or if Weston Schools Principal John Klang was the intended target, Sheriff Randy Stammen said. Witnesses said the student walked in with a shotgun before classes began. A custodian, teachers and students wrestled with him, but he broke through, took out a handgun and shot Klang three times, Stammen said.
