14-year old Georgia boy shot at high school football game

A football game had just ended at Banneker High School in College Park, Georgia, when a fight broke out.  Someone pulled out a gun and started shooting, wounding a 14-year old boy.

Another person besides the shooter also had a gun.

From an article:

Around 10:30 p.m., a large group of boys leaving the football game against Therrell High got into an altercation in the 6000 block of Feldwood Road, and someone pulled a gun and began shooting, Fulton County police spokeswoman Cpl. Kay Lester said. 
A 14-year-old was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, she said. 
Contrary to an earlier statement, the suspect is not in custody, she said. One person was arrested for having a weapon, but that person is not the shooter.
