The incident occurred on Wednesday at East High School in Denver, Colorado, at 10 am. The teenager's name has not been released, and it's unknown how severely the two school employees were hurt.
The student was being searched for a weapon, a routine procedure he was subjected to every day due to "prior behavior," a local news outlet reports.
In a statement, Mayor Michael Hancock said: "Another act of senseless gun violence rocked the East High School community this morning and my heart is with each and every student, staff member and parent.
"We are looking for the suspect. We will find that suspect, and we will hold that suspect accountable for his actions this morning in placing everyone in danger and certainly wounding the two staff members who were doing their job and trying to keep everyone safe at the time," said Mayor Hancock.
The motive for the shooting is still unclear. It is not known why the school allowed the student to continue attending despite the threat he posed.
The suspect is an African American male with an afro and was wearing a hoodie with the word "Astronaut" on it.
The mayor also warned the public that the student is armed and dangerous, and after firing multiple rounds from a handgun, he fled the scene and remains at large.
