A young gunman critically injured a 16-year-old in a school shooting early Thursday, then held the gun to his own head after police cornered him, authorities said. He then surrendered.

Police spokesman Sgt. Aaron Dunbar said the shooter appeared to be a student. He was arrested after the attack at Roseburg High School.

The school went into lockdown after the shots were fired about 7:45 a.m., and administrators were preparing to send students home. The suspect was not immediately identified and no motive for the shooting was disclosed.

A nearby elementary school in Roseburg, a southwest Oregon town of about 21,000 residents, also was locked down as a precaution.
