BOTHELL, Wash. (AP) - Police say a Bothell High School teacher was injured in an attack on the school’s campus.

Bothell police responded to a call from a school staff member Thursday afternoon that a teacher had been attacked and injured.

Police spokesman Sgt. Cedric Collins says a 63-year-old man was treated at the school and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was listed in serious condition Thursday night.

Authorities locked down the school temporarily to search for a suspect. No arrests were made.

Collins says it’s unknown whether a student was involved. It’s unclear where exactly the assault took place and what occurred. Northshore School District officials say it happened in an area of campus away from where students were.

District officials said Thursday night Bothell High School would be closed Friday while police investigate.
