Suspect In Custody After Fla. School Shooting

WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (AP) — Officials say an Orlando-area student who was shot at his high school is expected to survive and a 17-year-old suspect has been taken into custody.

School officials said Wednesday the shooting took place after the two teenage boys got into a fight at a bus pickup area at West Orange High School. The wounded 15-year-old student had injuries to his face and stomach but was alert when he was taken to a hospital.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said at a news conference the shooting took place shortly before 1:30 p.m. as students were being dismissed for the day.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Jane Watrel says the shooter was also a student at the high school.
