NEW ORLEANS -- A 14-year-old student at New Charter High near the UNO East campus was injured when shots rang out at the campus Monday afternoon.
NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said that a dark-colored pickup truck pulled up outside of the school and three shots were fired in the general direction of a couple of students outside.
Harrison said that the student suffered an injury to his elbow, but it was not a bullet wound.
One of the students that was in the outside group had gun residue on his hands, and he was subject to arrest, said Harrison. Another student was found with a firearm.
The school was temporarily placed on lockdown. No one else was reported to be injured.
Some parents who showed up at the school said they were nervous as the children were being held inside and in some cases, questioned about what they had seen.
Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
