* One pupil's heroic actions may have saved the lives of two girls in his class in the attack on Red Lake high school, Minnesota.

A report in the Ottawa Citizen said several witnesses had seen Chase Lussier, 15, throw himself between the teenage gunman and two girls, taking a bullet to the head. He died later in hospital.

Pupil Ashley Morrison, 16, said Chase died to save the lives of others, adding: "He jumped in front and took the bullet for those girls."
