Emergency vehicles at Atlanta school shooting

*There’s been another shooting at a school.

Fortunately it’s not nearly as bad as Newtown, but troubling none the less.

It happened outside Price Middle School in southeast Atlanta, said Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos.

A 14-year-old student shot in the head at an Atlanta school Thursday is “alert, conscious and breathing,” said Campos.

The victim has been taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Here is AJC.com’s report:

A teacher has been injured. One suspect is in custody, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Channel 2’s Tom Jones said students have been taken into an auditorium and are not being released at this time.

An AJC reporter at the scene said the area has been cordoned off by police and concerned parents are waiting outside.

Police helicopters are overhead.

Atlanta Public Schools have scheduled a 4 p.m. press conference.

The Atlanta public school is located north of the Lakewood area at 1670 Benjamin Weldon Bickers Drive S.E.

Initial police reports were that the shooting was at Carver High School.
