    No

    The whole notion of growth being stunted by weight lifting is
    a myth. It didn't stunt the growth of Shaquille O'Neal, David
    Robinson, Karl Malone, Michael Vick, etc. They all started
    lifting in their early teens, and all have gone on to be well
    over 6' tall and star in professional sports.

    Dave Draper and Arnold Schwarzenegger started lifting very
    young and both are 6'1" or taller. Lou Ferrigno started
    working out at 14 years old at the height of 5' 9" and grew to
    6' 5" - taller then anyone in his family!

    So the answer is no, weightlifting does not stunt height growth, or
    any other kind of growth, for that matter. There is no scientific
    evidence to support such ideas and, in fact, books such as the
    Russian, School of Height, suggest that weight training may
    stimulate growth. The latest weight training studies done on
    teens showed only positive effects.

    I'd also point out that activities such as running and jumping
    create forces on the body that are six to eight times one's body
    weight. The compression forces on his legs and spine are far
    greater in running and jumping than they will ever be in
    squatting or pressing over head.

    Not only will proper weight training not stunt growth, it allows
    teens to grow up with stronger muscles and bones, along with a
    healthy lifestyle. It certainly benefits any other sport they
    engage in.

    Even though proper weight training protocols will not inhibit
    growth, the risk for such occurrences and injuries are just like
    anything else. If you have proper instruction and a
    well-organized program,,your chances are very low.

    It is important to learn the basics of weight training and get
    medical clearance from your doctor before you begin.

    Careful attention should be paid to correct weightlifting form, and
    not using too much weight or too much stress placed on the
    joints. This is still true, of course for everyone, regardless
    of age, and no one should ever try to do more weight than they
    can reasonably lift, otherwise injury can occur.

    Correct technique will reduce any risk of injury and develop your
    strength more effectively than not training with proper technique.
    The greatest benefits and smallest risks occur when 8 to 15
    repetitions can be performed with a given weight before adding
    weight in small increments.

    Remember if you are going to exercise regularly always do a
    warm up followed by some stretching. After your workout take
    5-10 minutes to cool down and do some more gentle stretching.
    Studies have shown that people who warm up and cool down
    adequately have far fewer injuries.

          No like whereismarshall said.
          ...but as you weight train and put on muscle the added girth on your arms and chest will make a optical illusion of looking shorter. I am 6'0 but some people who haven't seen me since high school have commented how I look shorter now that I put on 30lb of lean muscle.
