    The principal of a South Dakota high school was shot and lightly wounded Wednesday in a shooting at the school, but authorities said a suspect was in custody and no students were reported hurt.

    Harrisburg High School Principal Kevin Lein suffered a flesh wound in the morning attack, Superintendent James Holbeck told local media outlets. 

    A student suspected in the shooting was in custody, Lincoln County Deputy State's Attorney Ross Wright said. He said Lein was in stable condition.
