A school shooting on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, at an Atlanta middle school has left two wounded, according to a report by MyFoxAtlanta.com. Officials confirmed that there has been a shooting at Price Middle School in Atlanta and a 14-year-old student was shot in the head. The student has been taken to a nearby hospital, but the teacher who was wounded was treated at the scene. The injured teacher was not shot.
Price Middle School, located on Benjamin Weldon Bickers Drive, is currently on lockdown. Parents are not permitted to pick up their children at this time, and only school officials are allowed on campus.
As is the norm with events of this type, the news emerging is slightly confusing. There has been some discrepancy about the number of students or teachers shot or wounded and the extent of their injuries. Fox News Insider is reporting that the 14-year-old victim was a girl, according to a parent who told them their child had texted them from inside the school.
More details are emerging.
