(AP) -- A law enforcement official says a shooting at a southwestern Ohio school district injured four students, with two shot and two hurt some other way.

Chief Anthony Dwyer of the Butler County sheriff's office says the shooting happened in the Madison Local Schools lunchroom and two students may have been hit by shrapnel or trying to get out of the way.

Dwyer says a suspect was taken into custody.

The school district says it's now dismissing students from the junior high and senior high schools as quickly as possible following the shooting.

The school district says on its website that the injuries are not life-threatening and that all other students are safe.

The district has declined to say what happened Monday, except that three students were injured and a suspect in custody. Police in nearby Middletown say on their Facebook page that it was a shooting.

The campus is near Middletown, roughly 30 miles north of Cincinnati. State records show enrollment of about 250 junior high and 500 high school students.
