A woman comforts a child after after a shooting at an Price Middle school in Atlanta Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013. A 14-year-old boy was wounded outside the school Thursday afternoon and a fellow student was in custody as a suspect, authorities said. No other students were hurt.

— 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 believe something occurred between the two people involved that may have led to Thursday’s shooting.

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.
