Fargo, ND (Northland's NewsCenter) --- A terrifying day for one North Dakota school after a high school boy allegedly brought a gun to class and shot himself.

According to our partners KVLY, the school in Fairmount, ND has let the students go home and have brought in counselors after what officials believe was a suicide attempt.

The school's principal says the boy did not threaten anyone else in the school.

The boy did survive the gun shot and has been taken to the hospital, however his condition is not known at this time.

The Richland County Sheriff's Office says that the school was put into lock down for about an hour after the incident occurred around 8:30am.

About 110 students attend the small town school with about 370 people living in Fairmount, ND.
