Police: Student Shoots Another in Fight Near School

SUITLAND, Md. — Authorities say one student shot another during an argument at an apartment complex near their high school.

Prince George’s County police spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan tweets that a group of students left Suitland High School on Friday. During an argument at a nearby apartment complex, Donelan says one student fired multiple shots, striking another student in the leg. Another bullet struck a window of a school annex building and lodged in the ceiling, but she says no one else was injured.

Donelan says the injured student was helped back to the campus, where an administrator was waved down. She says his injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening.

Donelan says police are searching for the shooter, who is thought to have fled the area. A school lockdown has been lifted.
