ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta fire official says a 14-year-old has been shot in the head at a middle school and has been taken to a hospital.
Atlanta Fire Cpt. Marian McDaniel also says a teacher suffered minor cuts and bruises but was treated on the scene at Price Middle School. Earlier, a police spokesman said he was headed to the school about 2 miles south of downtown following reports of a shooting.
TV news helicopters show a swarm of Atlanta police officers at the school.
McDaniel says the shooting victim was taken to Grady Hospital but information on the teen's condition was not immediately available.
MyFoxAtlanta.com is reporting that the school is on lock down, and that parents are not being allowed to pickup their children at this time. However, "school officials are coordinating 'an orderly dismissal,' the website is reporting.
The school is located on Benjamin Weldon Bickers Drive.
