Two suspects were in custody Tuesday after shots were fired outside a Fulton County high school, the result of an argument that spilled out from the school into the parking lot, school officials say.
Banneker High School and nearby Feldwood Elementary School were both put on lockdown around 1 p.m. after reports of gunfire in the Banneker parking lot.
“We’d had a student situation inside the school, which started as a disagreement. That ended up in the parking lot. We understand that there were two shots were fired in the air,” said Susan Hale, Fulton County Schools spokesperson. “No one was injured, and at this point we don’t believe the weapon was inside the school.”
Hale couldn’t confirm whether the two individuals in custody were students at the school.
She said Fulton County Schools Police and Union City Police are still investigating the incident.
Hale said those involved fled school property after the shots were fired, and police are still looking for more potential suspects.
The elementary school dismissed on time around 2:30 p.m., and Hale said Bannekar was set to dismiss just before 4 p.m.
