GREAT MILLS, Maryland — A sheriff’s spokeswoman said on Tuesday that injuries had been reported after a shooting at a high school in southern Maryland.
Cpl. Julie Yingling, spokeswoman of the St. Mary’s County sheriff’s, said there were injuries at the Great Mills High School. But she didn’t know how many or the severity of the injuries. She also said she had no information about fatalities.
