Just days after the U.S. was rocked by another high-school shooting, a young student at a school in Ohio was rushed to hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The 7th-grade student at Jackson Memorial Middle School in Stark County sustained the injury in a boy’s bathroom on Tuesday morning local time, leading to a lockdown of local schools.

Parents gathered at the school as reports of the shooting incident filtered out.

It comes less than a week after 17 people were killed by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
