CINCINNATI: Police say the handgun used by an Ohio high school student in a classroom suicide attempt came from his home.

Police say the gun was usually kept in a safe. Green Township police Chief Bart West says itís not clear whether the safe was locked or when the youth got the .45-caliber gun.

The student remained hospitalized in critical condition Tuesday as classes resumed at La Salle High School, an all-male Catholic school west of Cincinnati.

West says he visited the school and there were no problems, and that student attendance was good.
