A 14-year-old girl at Alpine High School in Texas shot and wounded another girl before fatally turning the gun on herself Thursday morning, police said.
The shooting happened in a bathroom before 8 a.m. in the only high school in Alpine, a town of 5,900 residents in western Texas, about 200 miles southeast of El Paso.
The survivor ran into the street in front of the school and was picked up by bystanders, Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson said. Sheriff Dodson said the shooter died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The other girl was wounded, he said.

The shooting happened less than three weeks after classes began Aug. 22. The district — comprising only one elementary, middle and high school, with about 1,000 students — went into lock down after the gunfire. The situation at the school has been normalized, but students had to leave for the day.
A Twitter user, identified only as key, wrote at 8:25 a.m.: “as a student of alpine high, I want to thank the law enforcement for their amazing effort to keep us safe.”
