Telvis Douglas, the 14-year-old student who was shot in the head yesterday at Price Middle School, has been released from Grady Memorial Hospital and is at home recovering from his injuries.

The shooting at the southeast Atlanta school occurred around 1:50 pm between the main building and the gym. A teacher was also injured in the melee but was not shot. One person, a student, is in custody, and a handgun was recovered at the scene.

Students began returning to Price Middle School this morning (February 1).

Douglas’ mother spoke to WSB-TV and said the bullet went through some tissue in the back of her son’s head and came out. She said Telvis told her he was in between classes when another student he recognized approached him, started “talking smack” and pulled out a gun. She said he turned to run when he was shot from behind.

Sources within Atlanta Public Schools told WSB-TV that after Telvis was shot, the gunman began shooting randomly at students running away, emptying his clip.

Price’s resource officer, an off-duty Atlanta police officer, disarmed the gunman before he was taken into custody.
