WSB-TV News reported that a man dressed all in black and armed with an AK-47 was arrested. The TV station said a woman from inside the school called the station’s Action News line and explained that the suspect ordered her to call WSB-TV and the local police. Shots were heard while woman was on the phone.

WSB said parents were to pick up their children at a nearby Walmart.

NBC News reported that about 600 students attend the school and everyone in the building has been accounted for.

TheTrumpet.com identified that there has been a record number of school shootings in 2012, the deadliest being the Newtown, Conn., shooting that horrified the nation. And this year, the online site said, is off to a terrible start. The article listed eight school shootings in January alone.
