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