Two students were killed Monday in a shooting at a Des Moines charter school, authorities said.
The calls for help came about 12:50 p.m. CT. A third victim was listed in stable condition, Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek told reporters at the scene.
The ages and affiliations of the victims were not immediately clear.
Police officers “have multiple potential suspects in custody,” according to a statement by Des Moines police.
The Iowa shooting comes in the wake of other troubling incidents of gunfire across the United States. Eleven people were killed at a dance studio in Monterey Park, California, late Saturday night and 12 people were shot inside a Baton Rouge, Louisiana, bar early Sunday morning.
