A school official says the student is being treated at a hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.
Parents rushed to Jackson Middle School, near Massillon, to pick up their children after the school sent out a notice about the shooting.
Authorities and school officials say they don’t whether the student was alone at the time of the shooting and haven’t released any other details about what happened.
Massillon is located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Cleveland.
