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.

She wasn't shot in the head. They are saying now that she was alert and talking when they took her in the ambulance. Two were injured, no one is dead. The suspect is in custody.

The news so far is staying it was a fight that got out of control. A student was shot in the head but alert on the way to the hospital. All students are locked down in the auditorium and are NOT allowed to leave. This all the information they have posted here in Atlanta. It is really sad.

It was a 14 year old male that was shot....the child was taken to the hospital and was alert and conscious. The suspect is another student and is already in custody.
