BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — One person has reportedly been killed and another wounded in a shooting outside a high school near Atlanta.

Clayton County Schools Safety Chief Thomas Trawick says shots were fired in a Mt. Zion High School parking lot after an argument between people who had attended a graduation ceremony for the Perry Learning Center, which prepares students for careers as an alternative to traditional high schools.

Trawick said he had no information on the status of the people who were sent to hospitals.

Jonesboro is less than 20 miles south of Atlanta.

The shooting comes less than 24 hours after a 17-year-old student opened fire at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, killing at least 10 people and wounding 10 others.
