High School Sophomore Killed in ‘Specifically Targeted’ Shooting at Bus Stop

A 16-year-old Indiana high school student was shot and killed while waiting for his bus Thursday morning in what police say was a “specifically targeted” shooting.

Greenwood police said they were searching for the suspect and provided no further information.

Clark-Pleasant Community Schools were placed on lockdown, the district told WISH. “No visitors will be permitted in our school buildings today,” the district said.

The district also said extra security officers were on hand as well as counselors.

The victim was a sophomore at Whiteland Community High School in the Clark-Pleasant district. A WISH reporter said that the victim’s sibling was also at the bus stop.

The neighboring Greenwood Community School district was temporarily on lockdown but moved to a “lockout” situation requiring students to have administrative approval and an escort to leave the building.
