All hostages released from Wisconsin high school

Students wait for news near Marinette High School (29 November 2010) Dozens of people gathered near the school, hoping for news of the stand-off

An armed student has released the 23 students and a teacher he was holding hostage at a school in Wisconsin.
An administrator at Marinette High School called the authorities shortly after 1500 (2100 GMT) to say a student with a handgun had taken over a room.
After a stand-off lasting five hours, Marinette Police Chief Jeff Skorik said all the hostages had been released.
The perpetrator was a 15-year-old student at the school who suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
He is now received treating in hospital, where his parents are with him, Police Chief Skorik said.
None of the hostages were wounded, although several shots were fired from the two weapons the student was carrying.
The police blocked off roads near the school, and local media report that a Swat team was called to the scene from Green Bay.
The armed student was a member of class in the room where he took the hostages. He does not have any police history.
Chief Skorik earlier said that all contact between the student and hostage negotiators had been through the female teacher being held hostage.
"We have no idea as far as motivations at this point," he said.
