SHARE `TROUBLED’ TEEN BOY TAKES HIGH SCHOOL CLASS HOSTAGE

A 15-year-old student apparently troubled over an impending move took a high school class hostage, shooting another boy in the face when the youth taunted him.

"I'll show you it's real," the youth said as he shot Anthony Lopez in the face with a pistol, hostages told reporters after Thursday's incident. Lopez, 15, was in satisfactory condition with a shattered jaw and the bullet lodged in his neck, his mother said.No other shots were fired and the youth, not identified because he is a juvenile, was talked into surrendering by police a short time later.
