BALTIMORE, Maryland  -- A 17-year-old student is in critical condition after being shot Wednesday on the grounds of Lake Clifton-Eastern High School in Baltimore, police said.

Baltimore City School Supervisor Barry Williams answers question from a reporter after a Lake Clifton-Eastern High School student was shot three times as he walked up to school Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2001 in Baltimore. The student was in critical condition after being shot but later died.  The police believe it was a premeditated attack. Two students from another city school were detained for questioning shortly after the shooting, police said.

BALTIMORE  - A student was in critical condition after being shot three times outside a city high school Wednesday in what police said was a premeditated attack.

Vanessa Pyatt, spokeswoman for the school system, says the 9th grader was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where doctors performed surgery on his wounds. He died shortly after the operations on Wednesday afternoon 

Baltimore City police have arrested two people at the corner of Sinclair and Washington shortly after the 8:45 a.m. shooting on the grounds of Lake Clifton-Eastern High School. They are still searching for at least two other involved in the crime.

The 17 year old student was shot with a small-caliber pistol while standing near a flagpole in front of the school's main entrance, police commissioner Edward Norris said. The gun was not recovered.

Witnesses said one suspect fled into a wooded area surrounding the school and jumped into a car waiting on the other side (See SCHOOL SAFETY SITE ASSESSMENT). The car was pulled over by police a few blocks away and both suspects were being questioned.

Police would not discuss a possible motive for the shooting.

``All I can imagine is that this is something that came from the community and spilled over onto school grounds,'' said area schools superintendent Barry Williams (See the Lock Out Violence Everyday Campaign - A community violence prevention program).

Matthews underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital and was in critical condition, spokeswoman Beth Simpkins said. But later passed away according to police.

  • This morning, January 17, 2001, another school student lost his life to the mindless epidemic of school violence. This incident coincides with the Surgeon Generalís release of a report on youth violence.

    The bottom line is this, there is hope and there are answers. Our thoughts and prayers go out to family of this latest victim in Baltimore.
