ATLANTA (January 31, 2013)--A shooting Thursday at an Atlanta middle school that left one teenager wounded was not random, authorities said.
The teen’s injury did not appear to be life threatening, police said.
Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said investigators are not certain what happened before Thursday's shooting at Price Middle School, but believe something occurred between the two people involved.
The suspect, who’s also a student at Price, was taken into custody.
Campos says the wounded boy was shot in the back of the neck.
He said a teacher received minor injuries in the "disorder" that followed the shooting.
Students at the school were kept inside for hours as their parents waited anxiously outside.
By 5 p.m. children were being reunited with their parents.
