JACKSBORO, Tenn. -- Principal Gary Seale was shot while wrestling with a student who had opened fire in school and killed an administrator, then managed to get to the intercom and order a lockdown, helping to end the rampage, authorities say.

Seale was shot in the lower abdomen and Assistant Principal Jim Pierce was hit in the chest Tuesday, authorities said. Both were in serious condition in intensive care at University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, spokeswoman Lisa McNeal said.
