Officials are meeting Thursday with parents and children shaken up by yesterday's fatal shooting at a Minnesota high school.

School officials say the meetings were organized to provide a forum to talk about the shootings and to let people know about counseling services available.

One student was killed and another is in critical condition after another student opened fire at the school in Cold Spring.

Authorities aren't identifying the 15-year-old freshman now in custody. They say he's cooperating with the investigation but a motive hasn't been determined. Several media outlets and students say the suspect's father is a sheriff's deputy.

Although many schools in the area remain open, Ricori High is closed at least until Friday.

The mother of a freshman who was among many students locked down as authorities raced to the shooting scene says her daughter has no fear about returning to school. And a student at Ricori says he'd like to get back to school and talk about what happened.
