Boy Shot During Field Day Games, Hospitalized

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — An elementary school student in suburban Atlanta was shot in the head during field day activities and has been hospitalized.

Clayton County schools spokeswoman Vicki Gavalas says a shot was fired from off campus and wounded a boy who was outside for field day Tuesday afternoon at Callaway Elementary School in Jonesboro.

Gavalas says the boy’s injury isn’t believed to be life-threatening, but the student and his mother have been taken to a local hospital. Details on the boy’s condition weren’t immediately available and Gavalas says Clayton County police are investigating the shooting.

Jonesboro is about 18 miles south of downtown Atlanta.
