The 14-year-old allegedly opened fire at a school in Prescott, a city roughly 90 miles southwest of Little Rock. The Prescott School District wrote on Facebook that the student "brought a concealed handgun to campus and shot another District student."

The school "went into immediate lockdown" and the student was "apprehended by law enforcement," officials said, adding: "It appears this was a premediated attack specifically targeting the injured student."

The student who was injured in the shooting was airlifted to Arkansas Children's Hospital and was hospitalized in stable condition, Prescott Police Chief Joseph Beavers told The Associated Press. He declined to release any more information on the alleged shooter and victim, including their names and whether they were male or female.
