Medical officials say at least three of the victims of Monday’s school shooting in Minnesota were shot in the head at close range.

One of the victims died, while two others are now listed in critical condition after being flown to a larger hospital in Fargo, North Dakota.

School officials say the gunman, identified as 17-year-old Jeff Weise, had been placed in a Homebound program for violating school policy.

There's still no word on why he stormed his way into Red Lake High School, killing an unarmed guard, a teacher and five students.

Authorities said Weise also had killed his grandfather and his grandfather's wife before taking his own life.
