Arrest Following Reports of Gunfire at Ga. Elementary School

DECATUR, Ga.  — The superintendent of DeKalb County schools says police have a suspect in custody after reports of gunfire at an Atlanta-area elementary school.

Michael Thurmond tells The Associated Press that school officials are doing a head count to ensure all students at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy are safe Tuesday.

Television footage shows students had been evacuated from the school and were sitting outside in a field. Buses are being brought in to take children away from the school.
