Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey says the shooter was captured near his home but the gun hasn't been recovered. He says surveillance video shows a group of students hanging around when the shooting happened. He says it's unclear if the shooting was accidental or intentional but it "doesn't look like an active shooter type of situation."
