(AP) -- As students at a central Illinois
high school return to class three days after shots were fired in a classroom,
the teacher who tackled the gunman says he and his students started the day
with a group hug.
School teacher Derrick Schonauer declined at a
Monday news conference to discuss details about Friday's incident. But
Schonauer says his students were composed when a boy pulled out a gun.
Police say two shots were fired in
Schonauer's classroom. One apparently happened as Schonauer tackled the boy. No
one was injured, and school was dismissed.
Police arrested a 14-year-old student.
Reporters couldn't enter the school Monday
as the 1,800 students returned, but the students appeared calm.
More than 400 people came to the school
Sunday for prayer services.
