MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

Monday was a mother's worst nightmare for Ginger Weaver.

Shots fired inside Madison Junior Senior High School and her son, 14 year-old Brant Murray, was among the injured.

“This is nothing you could ever prepare for,” said Weaver.

She said Brant was in the cafeteria when the shots started and that he pushed other students to safety.

"He was actually sitting at the table with all of the boys that were shot,” she explained. “They were sitting there eating lunch because of the round table, and the boy that did the shooting was at the table next to them, said he got up and turned around pointing the gun, just opened fire on their table.”

Brant's right leg was hit with shrapnel. His mom says he may have to have the metal surgically removed in the future. He is expected to make a full physical recovery.

Another student, Katherine Doucette was also grazed by a bullet. She has also been treated and released from the hospital.

According to officials Cameron Smith and Cooper Cafferyy, the two students who were shot, remained at Miami Valley Hospital as of Tuesday evening.
