The superintendent of DeKalb County schools says police have a suspect in custody after reports of gunfire at an Atlanta-area elementary school.
Schools spokesman Quinn Hudson says all students at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur are accounted for Tuesday.
Superintendent Michael Thurmond tells The Associated Press that he is not aware of any injuries.
Television footage showed students being evacuated from the school and sitting outside in a field. Buses are being brought in to take children to their parents at nearby Walmart.
Police are gathered at the school.
DeKalb County School Board Chairman Melvin Johnson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution there were reports of shots being fired inside the building that houses students from pre-school to fifth grade.
Calls to DeKalb County police were not immediately returned.
