Ohio student moved from hospital after shooting

CINCINNATI (AP) — A 17-year-old high school student who shot himself in a classroom has been moved from a hospital to a rehabilitation facility, more than three weeks after he was critically wounded.

A statement from his family released Wednesday by the University of Cincinnati Medical Center says that the youth has been transferred to a facility to work on improving mobility and strength. A hospital spokeswoman says that medical privacy rules prevent her from releasing any details.

He had been upgraded last week to serious condition from critical.

Police say he used a .45-caliber handgun to shoot himself in the head April 29 at La Salle High School, an all-male Catholic school just west of Cincinnati. Police have said there were no indications that any other students or staff were threatened.
