Marinette Police Chief Jeff Skorik said investigators still have no clear motive for the boy's actions Monday. The chief says the boy gave no reason for holding the 23 students and teacher in a classroom at Marinette High School for about five hours. None of the hostages were hurt.

Police say the boy shot himself as police burst into the classroom Monday night. Skorik says the teen had two handguns and fired several shots inside the classroom during the standoff. He says additional ammunition was found in a duffel bag at the school.
