Another unthinkable tragedy.
A 14 year-old boy was shot at Price Middle School in Atlanta this afternoon when a gunman opened fire for reasons currently unknown. Police arrested the suspect, who is another student, at the scene.
Mercifully, the unnamed young victim was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors found him "alert, conscious and breathing."
One teacher also suffered minor wounds as commotion spread across the school and the campus was eventually put on lockdown.
We don't know where the alleged shooter got his or her gun, nor whom he or she planned to shoot.
We only know a 14-year-old-boy went to school today hoping to fill his brain with knowledge. Instead, someone put a bullet in his head.
Something must be done to protect our country's youth. It's unfathomable so many school children have access to guns.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by these senseless tragedies.
