OAKDALE, Minn. (AP) - A team of counselors is talking to students at Oakdale Elementary, the school attended by a 9-year-old boy who was shot and killed.
District 622 spokeswoman Jennifer McNeil says about a dozen social workers and psychologists are helping students cope with the loss of their fourth-grade classmate.
Police have not yet identified the boy who was fatally shot by an apparent random gunman in Oakdale Monday evening. Authorities say the boy's mother and another woman were wounded.
McNeil says students are shaken up and "some of the kids are taking it pretty hard."
About 500 students attend Oakdale Elementary School.
