A sixth-grade student shot and killed a teacher and wounded several classmates before killing himself inside an elementary school Friday morning in northern Mexico, authorities said.
The 11-year-old boy apparently told another student, “Today is the day,” then asked to go to the bathroom, where he stayed for about 15 minutes before getting out and firing two guns, a preliminary investigation found.
The shooting happened in Torreón, a large city in the state of Coahuila.
Authorities said five students and a gym teacher were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds, but their condition was not immediately known.
