Published February 11, 2010

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee elementary school teacher accused of shooting and wounding the principal and assistant principal at his school is being held on a $1 million bond.

Forty-eight-year-old Mark Stephen Foster is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and unlawful possession of a gun on school property.

He's accused of shooting the administrators at Inskip Elementary School in Knoxville on Wednesday, soon after the children were dismissed because of snow.

Hospital officials say Principal Elisa Luna remains in critical condition. Assistant Principal Amy Brace was in stable condition Wednesday night.

Police have not discussed a motive. His brother and a former employer say Foster had shown threatening behavior before.
