HARRISBURG, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota principal who took a bullet to his arm offered “deep prayers” to the student charged Thursday with shooting him.

Harrisburg High School Principal Kevin Lein offered prayers to 16-year-old Mason Buhl and his family, adding that he hopes the teenager is OK and that he can soon get the heIp he needs.

Buhl has been charged in adult court with attempted murder. Authorities say two staff members tackled Buhl and held him down after Wednesday’s shooting until sheriff’s deputies arrived, preventing other injuries.

Lein is wearing a sling on his injured right arm, a bandage sticking out slightly from his long-sleeve yellow shirt.

He says he doesn’t know what hand of God was in his office yesterday that pushed everyone to do the right thing.
