Price Middle School Shooting Proves that Awareness is Not Enough

February 1, 2013


I am afraid all the awareness in the world will not be enough to protect America’s school children. This new shooting is bound to veer towards insane suggestions like arming teachers, when much more is required:

Police responded to a shooting at Price Middle School in Atlanta early Thursday afternoon, WSBTV reports.

Authorities say that multiple people, including a 14-year-old, were wounded, according to Fox News.

Police said the teen was shot in the back of the neck and immediately transported to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment, 11Alive reports. The victim was reportedly awake and responsive while being transported to the hospital.

The second victim — a teacher — received medical attention for minor cuts and bruises. The teacher may have been trampled during the chaotic scene, WXIA reports.

One person is in custody, according to CBS Atlanta. Atlanta Police spokesperson Carlos Campos told WXIA that the suspect was tentatively identified as a student. The shooting reportedly occurred outside the building.

The school was placed on lockdown, along with an elementary school and high school in the area. Parents were initially asked not to come to the school to avoid additional confusion, but students are expected to be released at the normal dismissal time of 3:45 p.m.
