Orlando_Shooting_2013ORANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two teenage boys were shot and wounded outside an Orlando private school.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office reports that a fight broke out in the parking lot of Agape Christian Academy shortly after classes let out Friday afternoon. When deputies arrived, they found a 16-year-old student suffering from a gunshot wound to the hip.

The suspected shooter, who is not a student at the school, reportedly fled in a car with several other males. Authorities say the fight was apparently the result of an ongoing feud.

Witnesses told deputies that a 17-year-old student had also been hit by a stray bullet or shrapnel, but family members had already taken him to a hospital.

None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Investigators weren’t immediately naming the victims or the suspect.
