DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Channel 2 Action News has learned that police have charged a teenage boy with the pellet gun shooting of nine students at a DeKalb County elementary school.
Sources told Channel 2's Michael Seiden on Tuesday that the teen is charged with nine counts of aggravated assault, one for each injured student. It's unclear whether he has been taken into custody yet.
A special meeting was held Tuesday night to address concerns about what happened and how the school reacted.
"I still wasn't informed," one parent told Channel 2's Matt Johnson.
When Johnson asked Dr. Stephen Green about communication that parents asked for during the crisis, he said it is being reviewed.
"Maybe we can work to get something out as quickly as possible without sharing too many details for fear of being inaccurate," Green said.
