August 24, 2019

CONYERS, Ga. (AP) — A 12-year-old boy has been wounded in a shooting at an elementary school in Georgia and another child is in custody.

Rockdale County sheriff’s deputies say deputies responded to Peek’s Chapel Elementary School in Conyers at about 6:35 p.m. Friday and found the boy with a gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital. His condition was not known Saturday afternoon.

It’s unclear how many other students were on campus at that hour.

Deputies say a boy was taken into custody and has been charged in connection with the shooting. The exact charges and details about the shooting have not been released.

Neither child’s name has been released because of their age.

According to sheriff’s office, the incident remains under investigation.
