ATLANTA - Police say five people were shot near a high school in Atlanta. Officials say all five are believed to be students.

Atlanta Police Sgt. Greg Lyon says the five were shot near Therrell High School this afternoon. He says their injuries don't appear to be life-threatening. Police have said the shooting didn't happen on school property.

Atlanta Public Schools spokeswoman Kimberly Willis Green says the victims are believed to be students. It wasn't immediately clear if the shooter was also a student.

Police spokesman John Chafee says authorities are speaking with a possible suspect but an arrest hasn't been made.

Green says the school was locked down as a precaution, and all after-school activities were canceled.

Further details were not immediately available.
