MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis police say a 13-year-old was shot Thursday morning at Cummings K-8 Optional School.

Students and staff were ushered out of the building with their arms raised. Children boarded buses bound for a nearby church where hours after the shooting they were reunited with their parents.

Police have not identified either child involved. The victim is in critical condition.
