ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta fire official says a 14-year-old has been shot in the head at a middle school and has been taken to a hospital.

Atlanta Fire Cpt. Marian McDaniel also says a teacher suffered minor cuts and bruises but was treated on the scene at Price Middle School. Earlier, a police spokesman said he was headed to the school about 2 miles south of downtown following reports of a shooting.

TV news helicopters show a swarm of Atlanta police officers at the school.

McDaniel says the shooting victim was taken to Grady Hospital but information on the teen's condition was not immediately available.
