Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said Wednesday that based on evidence gathered so far, the Tuesday afternoon shooting at a high school in Bellaire was not intentional.

She says both students were part of the ROTC group.

The alleged shooter has been charged with manslaughter in the killing of the other 16-year-old student.
