The 14-year-old’s injuries are reportedly not life threatening and the teacher received only minor injuries.

The suspect, who was arrested immediately following the shooting, is a student, Atlanta Public Schools spokesman Stephen Alford confirmed to CBS Atlanta.

The shooting reportedly happened in the school’s courtyard and was reported late Thursday afternoon.
