MEMPHIS, Tenn. — One boy was critically injured in a shooting Thursday morning at a Memphis K-8 school.

The suspected shooter, who police said was a student, has turned himself in.

Police responded at 9:15 a.m. to Cummings Elementary School on Cummings Street near Walker Avenue in the Soulsville area of South Memphis.

MPD said one 13-year-old boy was transported to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in critical but stable condition.

Police said the suspected shooter is a juvenile male, who is also a student at the school. That juvenile fled in a vehicle, but was taken into police custody after a search.
