Gunman surrenders in high school standoff

A suspect who held a school administrator hostage at a New York high school surrendered Tuesday morning, the Duchess County Sheriff's Office said.

Authorities said there were no injuries.

Pine Plains Town Supervisor Gregg Pulver said the single gunman at Stissing Mountain High was a former student in his 40s.

The school is about 90 miles north of New York City.



Margaret Hart, who lives across the street from the school, said police cars were in the neighborhood and helicopters were flying overhead. She said the area around the school has a lot of woods.
