Student shot outside Atlanta high school after football game


ATLANTA — Atlanta public school officials have confirmed that a student was shot over the weekend in a school parking lot after a football game.

School district spokeswoman Latisha Gray said in a statement Sunday that the student was in good condition after being shot Friday night in the parking lot of Benjamin Elijah Mays High School in southwest Atlanta.

Gray says the unidentified student was shot by someone in a car that had entered the parking lot. The student had returned from a football game at the Georgia Dome.

It is unclear if the student was the intended target.

Officials say they will have extra security at the school on Monday.
