A student at Price Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia was shot in the head Thursday and is being treated in a hospital.
The victim, 14, was said to be responsive when he was taken to the emergency room.
Initial reports indicated that a teacher had also been shot, but Fox News reported that the teenager was the only victim.
The teacher suffered "minor cuts and bruises" and was treated at the scene.
There is one suspect in the case, a male student, who has been taken into custody.
Other details about the shooting, and why it occurred, have yet to be revealed.
This shooting follows a series of violent massacres that have occurred across the US in the past year. Most notably, the Sandy Hook shooting which left 20 children and six adults dead.
