Another US High School
Shooting - Six Wounded In Georgia

CONYERS, GA. - Exactly one month after the school shooting in Littleton, Colorado, shots rang out this morning at a high school east of Atlanta.
Rockdale County Sheriff's deputies report at least 4 students have been shot at Heritage High School in the town of Conyers. Six students in all were injured. The Rockdale County Sheriff's deputies report none of the injuries are life-threatening and the shooter is in custody.
The shooting happened just after 8 a.m ET. The gunman, a sophomore at the high school, opened fire in the common area of the school near the cafeteria where some students were eating breakfast.
Police arrested the suspect within 10 minutes. One witness, high school senior William Britt, said the shooter was carrying a rifle and a handgun. Britt also reported that the gunman put the handgun in his mouth as if he were about to shoot himself.
"He put the revolver in his mouth, but he didn't shoot himself," Britt said. At least one weapon has been recovered.
Another witness said he initially thought it was a prank. "I thought it was firecrackers until I saw kids running towards me," said Tony Gray, a math teacher at the school.
While police don't believe there are any bombs in the school, the bomb squad has been called in to search the area.
Five of the injured students were taken immediately to nearby Rockdale Hospital in Conyers, GA. The sixth student was taken to hospital in Atlanta.
Heritage High School has approximately 1,400 students. Thursday marked the last day of school for senior students at the school.
Hours after the shooting, the U.S. senate voted 79-29 to enact tougher restrictions on the purchasing of firearms. The Republican amendment to the juvenile crime bill will require background checks on all firearm transactions at gun shows and pawn shops.
One month ago today two high school students murdered 13 people in a shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado.
U.S. President Bill Clinton, due to visit the survivors of Littleton Thursday, called the shooting "deeply troubling."
