Armed guard disarmed teen in Atlanta school shooting, says police chief
By KATE BRUMBACKThe Associated Press
Atlanta ē A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.
Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.
The wounded boy was taken "alert, conscious and breathing" to Grady Memorial Hospital, said police spokesman Carlos Campos. He was expected to be released Thursday night.
Police swarmed the school of about 400 students after reports of the shooting while a crowd of anxious parents gathered in the streets, awaiting word on their children. Students were kept at the locked-down school for more than two hours before being dismissed.
Investigators believe the shooting was not random and that something occurred between the two students that may have led to it.
Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis said the school does have metal detectors.
"The obvious question is how did this get past a metal detector?" Davis asked about the gun. "Thatís something we do not know yet."
The armed resource officer who took the gun away was off-duty and at the school, but police didnít release details on him or whether he is regularly at Price. Since 20 children and six adults were shot to death at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December, calls for armed officers in every school have resonated across the country.
Hours after the Atlanta shooting, several school buses loaded with children pulled away from the school and stopped in front of a church about a half-block away. Parents tried boarding the buses. Police who initially tried to stop the parents, relented and screamed, "Let them off!" about the students.
James Bolton was at work when his sister called saying a teen had been shot at his sonís school and was in the crowd as parents began swarming the fleet of buses.

Check your facts before you speak. No assault weapons were used in Newtown. The shooter used pistols. His assault rifle was left in his car.

Check your facts before you speak. The .223 Bushmaster assault rifle was what the kids were killed with. It wasn't in the car. There were 3 handguns on him but the assault rifle was what he did the killings with.

If it wasn't for gun crazies letting kids get hold of guns it wouldn't have happened at all.

"authorities have established that Adam Lanza shot open an entrance into Newtown's Sandy Hook Elementary School. He fired multiple magazines -- each one with 30 bullets -- from a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle to kill six adults and 20 children from two classrooms. Each victim was shot multiple times before Lanza used a handgun to kill himself."

Schools have always been permitted to have trained resource officers. Elementary schools, high schools, and colleges. What do you think the campus police at UK and EKU are?

Why doesn't every school have resource officers? That's easy to answer. Because of the very people on here who are yelling 'put armed resource officers in schools'. They are the very reason why most schools doesn't.

Go back to before the election and see how these same exact people were yelling about high taxes and supporting the Republican Party's stand on cutting funding to various things, including wanting education to take a colossal hit.

I wish Republicans would make up their minds.

If you wish trained resource officers in schools all you have to do is hire them at South/North Laurel and at each of the elementary schools here in the county. But not if you still stand against schools and education like Republicans did before the election.

I would love to see a photo of the entrance he shot open or maybe some spent shell casings on the ground, it would help ease a lot of peoples minds. I saw one report later where ABC, NBC, and CBS all said the bushmaster was left in the car and that Adam had four handguns inside the school.

If anyone knows exactly what happened then please tell us, they are asking this very question on the Newtown, Ct. forum but no local people are posting anything.
