ATLANTA — School officials in Atlanta say metal detectors weren’t working at a middle school on the day a 14-year-old pupil was shot and wounded.
Public school administrators acknowledged late Friday that Price Middle School’s two metal detectors were “not operable” Thursday. The statement said an investigation found there had been limited use of the detectors this year.
City school officials say they plan to immediately test all school metal detectors and review pupil entrance and exit procedures.
