WARSAW, Poland (AP) - An 11-year-old girl and a woman were wounded when a masked man entered a primary school in central Poland and threw firecrackers and fired a shotgun, police said Monday.

The spokeswoman for police in Bydgoszcz, Monika Chlebicz, said that the girl was injured in the chest and leg by shrapnel and one of the cleaning staff sustained one gunshot wound in the attack by an intruder in Primary School Nr. 1 in Brzesc Kujawski.

The student was taken by helicopter to a children’s hospital in Torun while an ambulance took the woman to a hospital in Wloclawek. Their lives are not in danger, she said.

Chlebicz said an 18-year-old suspect was arrested. Police and prosecutors have searched his apartment as part of their investigation.
