A 14-year old student was shot in the head today at an Atlanta, Georgia, middle school. There are few details, but the student, identified as male, is still conscious and has been rushed to a hospital.
“A teacher was also injured, though not by a gun; she may have been trampled in the ensuing chaos following the gunshots. The teacher was also taken to the hospital, and apparently her condition is not serious,” KOWB reports:
Police have apprehended the suspected shooter, who police spokesman Carlos Campos said was also a student. Price and other nearby schools have been placed on lockdown.
