    WI- Armed Student Reportedly Holding High School Classroom Full of Hostages *merged*

    Authorities are investigating reports of an armed student holding a classroom hostage at a high school in Wisconsin.

    Police are on scene and no injuries are reported at this time, Marinette County Emergency Management said in a news release, without confirming a hostage standoff.

    Police received a call just before 4 p.m. local time of an armed student at Marinette High School. Parents were asked to respond to the county courthouse to receive information on their children

    Student with Gun Holding 24 Hostages at Marinette High School
    Marinette's police chief says a student armed with a handgun is holding 23 students and a teacher in a classroom.
    ---
    Marinette Police Chief Jeff Skorik says it's a male student armed with a handgun. He is using a teacher as a liaison to authorities outside the school.

    Chief Skorik says despite reports on social media there are no injuries reported, and no shots were fired.

    Dozens of students and family members have gathered at a hair salon near the school. They tell us they're worried because they don't know exactly what is going on, and there are a lot of rumors.

    It was the first I heard of it here in Wisconsin! I've been looking for more info, haven't really found any yet. This is a link to a local newspaper, no other info yet, but they are running a little streaming announcement up on the top.

    Not much new info here (http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/loc...cc4c002e0.html), just a small quote from a teacher:
    Choral teacher Bonita Weydt said she was talking with a teacher in another classroom after school, which lets out about 3:10 p.m., when principal Corry Lambie came in.

    "I said, 'Corry, what's going on?' and he said, 'Get out of the building,'" Weydt said.
    Scary.

    Here is a link to the H/S webpage. I haven't seen it yet it keeps loading and loading. I'm sure the net traffic has slowed it down. If this started around 3pm the situation has been going over five hours.

    Update: Student Holding Hostages has No History with Police
    ---
    They don't know what his demands are or what prompted this. The student doesn't have any history with police, Chief Skorik said. It also isn't known whether the student was supposed to be in that classroom when this began.

    Chief Skorik said the situation started toward the end of the school day -- while school was still in session. Authorities weren't notified until later, after other students had left.

    Here is a map to high school. I don't like mapquest, but that's what the H/S webpage uses.

    Marinette Police Chief Jeff Skorik said there were no injuries so far in the incident and negotiators were communicating with the classroom via telephone, mostly with the teacher.

    "We are hoping to be able to eventually speak with the student and resolve this matter," Skorik said.

    At least 40 emergency personnel were on the scene and the school has been surrounded and the perimeter secured, he said.

    Witnesses said there were numerous police cars and fire trucks on the scene and and the parking lot nearby was filled with people, many of them students.

    I've been following this on Twitter for the last hour or so.

    Prayers these kids & the teacher all get out safely.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Besides Marinette County authorities, FOX 11 is told Green Bay police and the Green Bay SWAT team has been called to the scene.
    Authorities expect to have another briefing around 8:30 or 9:00 p.m.
