At least two persons have been shot near Mt. Zion High School in Clayton County in the state of Georgia, police said on Friday night. One of the victims has died.
The shooting came hours after 10 people were gunned down at a high school in Texas and 10 others were injured.
Clayton County police told reporters a graduation ceremony was happening across the street at the Clayton County Performing Arts Center when the shooting occurred.
It was unclear if the people who were shot attended that graduation.
“At this time we have 2 people who have been shot. One person is now confirmed deceased.
“The incident occurred on school property. The Clayton County Police Department has assumed the investigation and is working to gather details. More information will be provided as it becomes available,” police said.
