UPDATE: Authorities say a shooting at an Atlanta middle school that left one teen wounded was not random and the boy's injury does not appear to be life-threatening.
    
Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said investigators believe something occurred between the two people involved that may have led to Thursday's shooting.
    
The suspect is also a student at Price and has been taken into custody.
    
Campos says the wounded boy was shot in the back of the neck. He says a teacher received minor injuries in the "disorder" that followed the shooting.
