ATLANTA — Authorities say a 14-year-old was wounded today in a shooting at an Atlanta middle school and a suspect has been arrested.
Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos says the wounded student has been taken “alert, conscious and breathing” to Grady Hospital.
He says the suspect has been tentatively identified as a student and all other students at the school are safe. Campos says the teen was shot outside of the school building.
Atlanta Fire Cpt. Marian McDaniel says the teen was shot in the head. McDaniel says a teacher suffered minor cuts and bruises, but was treated on the scene about 2 miles south of downtown.
