Official: Gunman holding NY principal hostage


PINE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- A town official says a gunman at an upstate New York high school has taken the principal hostage.

Pine Plains Town Supervisor Gregg Pulver tells CNN that students at Stissing Mountain High School are safe. The school is about 90 miles north of New York City.

The school remains on lockdown. Pulver says police are in contact with the gunman. He says the gunman is an adult, not a student.

State police and Dutchess County sheriffs deputies released no other information.
