CINCINNATI — A 17-year-old student was shot near Woodward Career Technical High School late Monday afternoon, according to Cincinnati police.

Police told WCPO the shooting happened after 4:30 p.m. "in the vicinity" of the Bond Hill high school, at the corner of Seymour Avenue and Reading Road.

Cincinnati police sergeant Kelvin Lynn said the victim was shot in the arm off of school grounds and walked in to the school office for help. Police say he is a student at Woodward.

There were several events happening at Woodward at the time of the shooting, including a football practice, police said.

Police have not provided any information about suspects, but say that the shooter is at large. The student was hospitalized.

A witness told WCPO that there was a large group of kids hanging out by the Walgreens driveway and a fight started. The witness said it looked like 3-4 kids tried to fight one kid. The one got away and started running away when another pulled a gun out of his waist band and started firing at him as he was running, according to the witness.

WCPO will post more updates as they become available.
