ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta's police chief says an armed officer working at a city middle school where a teen was shot was able to disarm the suspect moments after the shooting.

Authorities say a 14-year-old boy was shot in the back of the neck Thursday at Price Middle School and his injury does not appear be life-threatening. The suspect is also a student at the school and has been taken into custody.

Chief George Turner says multiple shots were fired, and only the 14-year-old was wounded. A teacher received minor cuts in the aftermath of the shooting in the courtyard of the school.

Police spokesman Carlos Campos says investigators believe the shooting was not random.
