Atlanta School Shooting


This is what the NRA says should be done instead of the federal government's oppressive gun ban initiatives. Guess what? It WORKS!

Police are investigating after a student was shot at an Atlanta school on Thursday afternoon.
The 14-year-old student at Price Middle School was transported in stable condition to Grady Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the back of his neck, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said.
The student was treated and released Thursday evening, Grady spokeswoman Denise Simpson said.
The shooting occurred just before 2 p.m. in southeast Atlanta, north of the Lakewood area. A small-caliber handgun was recovered at the scene. A teacher suffered a minor injury “while running,” Campos said.
An armed police resource officer apprehended the suspect, also a student at the school, “within minutes,” authorities said during a late afternoon news conference. Charges against the suspect are pending, Campos said.
The identities of the victim and the suspect will not be released because they are juveniles.
The preliminary investigation indicates that the shooting was the result of a previous disagreement between the students involved, Campos said.
School officials praised the response of the officer, an off-duty Atlanta police officer, but offer few details of the incident, which happened on the school campus between the main building and the gym.
