Two students wounded in New Orleans middle school shooting

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana -- Two students were shot and wounded outside a middle school in New Orleans, Louisiana, police said on Tuesday. "School Shooting Map"

A police officer stands guard Tuesday outside Carter C. Woodson Middle School in New Orleans after two students were shot

Both students were critically injured, Charity Hospital spokeswoman Jean Patterson said.

Both boys appeared conscious as they were taken by ambulance from Carter G. Woodson Middle School, city police spokesman David Bowser said.

One student claiming he was a witness said the incident stemmed from a fight on school grounds, according to Danette Weatherspoon, whose son attends the school. The boy told her one of the students went home and returned with a handgun, then shot the boy he had been fighting.

Somehow the victim got the gun and shot his attacker, Weatherspoon said the boy told her.

More than 100 parents rushed to the school and lined up outside as officials let small groups enter the building to get their children.

As the gunfire erupted, children scattered across school grounds, said witness Ruth Blunt. Four to five shots rang out and neighbors began running out of their homes to see what was going on, Blunt said.

"Kids started running out. ... We went out in the yard, and somebody was down," Blunt said. "It is frightening, very frightening."
