UPDATE: Authorities: Teen wounded in Ga. school shooting

ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities say a shooting at an Atlanta middle school that left one teen wounded was not random and the boy's injury does not appear to be life-threatening.

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 is also a student at Price and has been taken into custody.

Campos says the wounded boy was shot in the back of the neck. He says 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.
