Police say a student suffered injuries that were not life-threatening
when he was shot in the leg by another student at a Jackson high
school.

Deputy Chief Barry Michael says an altercation took
place between two male students after dismissal at Liberty Technology
Magnet High School on Thursday.

Michael says a 16-year-old student pulled out a
handgun and shot the other in the leg.

The 17-year-old victim was taken to a hospital in
stable condition. Michael says the other student was arrested at his
grandmother's house.

Michael says the shooting happened on campus but
outside the school building, near an area where students were loading
onto a bus. Police are investigating, and there was no immediate word on
possible charges.
