10 kids shot by 'BB or pellet gun' outside Georgia school

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Ten students at an Atlanta-area elementary school suffered non-life threatening injuries after being shot by a BB or pellet gun while on the playground.

A statement from the DeKalb County School District says the shots fired Thursday at students of Wynbrooke Elementary Theme School in Stone Mountain "appear to have come from a position away from the school grounds." The statement says county and district law enforcement are investigating.

The injured students were brought to a hospital to be treated or picked up by their parents.

The school district says there was never a threat of anyone getting into the school building. But it's posting additional staff and law enforcement at the school Friday to ensure students' safety.
