Minor charged with manslaughter in Texas school shooting

HOUSTON, Tx. (AP) -- Prosecutors say a minor has been charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old student at a Texas high school.

The minor and another person were arrested about 3 1/2 hours after the Tuesday afternoon shooting at a high school in Bellaire, a suburb southwest of Houston.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office says the minor could not be identified because of privacy laws, and authorities haven't released even basic non-identifying information about the alleged shooter, including the person's age and sex.

The Houston Independent School District canceled classes Wednesday.
