WINSTON-SALEM -- One student has non life-threatening injuries in a shooting that took place at Carver High School in Winston-Salem on Friday afternoon.

Winston-Salem police say a 15 year old was shot and sustained non life-threatening injuries. That student was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center shortly after being shot.

The shooting happened outside, after a planned fire drill around 2:30 p.m. A resource officer took the suspect into custody shortly after the shooting occurred. The suspect was also a student.

The motive and the relationship between the shooter and the victim are unknown at this point.

The school was immediately placed on lock down and all students were accounted for. Authorities say there is no threat to the area anymore.

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools superintendent Dr. Beverly Emory praised the resource officer for his quick action in the situation.

Carver High School's football game against R.J. Reynolds High School on Friday night has been postponed.

A crisis team will be on hand for the students at the school on Monday.
