RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) -- A school spokeswoman says all students and staffers are safe following a shooting at an eastern Indiana middle school where police say a teenage suspect has died.

Bridget Hazelbaker of Richmond Community Schools tells the Palladium-Item that the suspect was the only person injured Thursday morning at Dennis Intermediate School.

Indiana State Police Capt. David Bursten says he couldn't immediately confirm how the suspect died or other details of what led up to the shooting.

Students from the school were being bused to Richmond High School for parents to pick them up. The city is near the Indiana-Ohio state line about 60 miles (96 kilometers) east of Indianapolis.
