According to school Superintendent Erroll Davis, the student received a soft tissue injury.

(Davis) “The incident was contained immediately by the assigned resource officer on campus.  In fact, it was the resource officer who disarmed the student.”

…And took him into custody.  Davis says there are metal detectors on campus, and they’re investigating if the handgun made it past one of them.  Police say they’re not certain at this time of a motive.
