Shots fired at high school in Mobile, Alabama

Three teens, who were suspended students from another school, walked onto the grounds of Leflore High School in Mobile, Alabama, and confronted one of the students, starting an argument.  That's when one of the teens, age 16, opened fire at the student he confronted.

From the article:
No one was struck by the gunfire, although about 30 students in the area were forced to flee, according to Mobile County District Attorney Ashley Rich.
The gunman, a suspended student from another campus, was accompanied by two other young men, also believed to be suspended students, Rich said.
Rich said they did not attend LeFlore High School, although it was unclear where they had attended school before being suspended.
One female student was slightly injured while fleeing gunfire.  She was treated by a nurse and returned to classes.  One car had a window shot out.  Otherwise, no one was injured, luckily.

Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
