Student suspect in custody, victim shot in head
Around 1:50 p.m., one student shot a 14-year-old boy – also a student – in a grassy area outside Price Middle School in southeast Atlanta. The shooter has been taken into custody. The victim, whose identity was not released, was shot in the back in the head and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. A teacher was also injured but was not shot.
School officials immediately placed the building on lockdown. Atlanta Police Department investigators are on-scene.
School officials had scheduled a 4 o’clock press conference but delayed that media update until all other students were dismissed.
