Students Shot at New Orleans School


By ALAN CLENDENNING, Associated Press Writer

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Gunfire erupted at a middle school Tuesday, critically injuring two students, authorities said.

The shooting took place shortly before noon at Carter G. Woodson Middle School in uptown New Orleans, said David Bowser, a police spokesman.

Both students appeared conscious when were taken by ambulances to Charity Hospital, Bowser said.

There was no immediate word on suspects. Bowser said there had been several fights reported at the school in the past few weeks. It was unclear whether the shooting was related to the fights.

More than 100 parents rushed to the school and lined up outside as officials let small groups enter the building to get their children.

The two students were listed in critical condition, said hospital spokeswoman Jean Patterson.

Totally out of control...I remember when a 'fight' was off school grounds and with 'fists' not weapons.

Too sad.
