A student has been shot at Butler High School.

Investigators have the weapon that was used, and they were able to review surveillance footage of the shooting, which took place during a "fight between the two students", according to Matthews Police Department Capt. Stason Tyrrell. Police believe the shooting was an "isolated incident", and authorities have secured campus.

"We are incredibly saddened that we had a loss of life on one of our campuses", Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox said.

"Law enforcement has advised that there is no further immediate danger at this time and initial investigation shows this to be an isolated incident".

One student was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.

"Someone asked me how could someone, especially a student, come onto one of our campuses with a loaded gun, and I wish I had an answer to that", Wilcox said. When they arrived to find their children absent, dozens of parents took matters into their own hands, marching over a highway overpass and crossing police barricades to assemble at the doors of the school.

The superintendent said the school will be closed on Tuesday.

Matthews is located about 22 miles southeast of Charlotte. The school does not have metal detectors, he said. With the suspect in custody, however, it's unclear what dangers he felt were worth confining students to the site of the traumatic event they had just witnessed.

"We hear the bell ring and I see two kids are wrestling", said Lane McNary.

Shootings have become so normalized in our society that we're expected to get over it and move on in (literally) an instant. "And what makes it doubly worse is it was one of our students who was the shooter".

Classes went on as scheduled for students who opted to stay on campus, CBS Charlotte reports.

Cuffie is in the ninth grade at Butler High School.

"We don't actively search every bad that comes into school each and every day".
