Reports Of Shots Fired At US Elementary School

Reports Of Shots Fired At US Elementary School in Georgia have a suspect in custody after gunfire was reported at an Atlanta-area elementary school.All students and teachers from Ronald E McNair Discovery Learning Academy are accounted for and safe, school district superintendent Michael Thurmond said.Television footage showed students being evacuated from the school in Decatur and sitting outside in a field.School buses were brought in to take children to their parents at a nearby Wal-Mart.WSB-TV reports a woman called the station from inside the school and said a gunman asked her to contact the Atlanta station and police.The station said shots could be heard in the background during the call.Mr Thurmond said the suspect is a man in his mid-20s and did not have an obvious connection to the school.DeKalb County Police Department spokeswoman Mekka Parish said: "We're in the process of reuniting the children with their parents. We're just trying to calm the nerves of parents."The school has about 870 children enrolled and houses students ranging from pre-kindergarten to fifth grade.The students are similar in age to those involved in the deadly school shooting in Connecticut last December, when 20 children and six educators were killed
