Multiple people were shot following a graduation ceremony in Clayton County, Georgia, according to ABC Action News. The shooting reportedly took place in a parking lot of Mt.

The 2 reported victims from the shooting have been taken to separate hospitals.

“One woman dead, another shot, pregnant woman trampled in a parking lot of Mount Zion High School, across the street from a graduation ceremony,” Jaclyn Schultz of Fox 5 in Atlanta tweeted.

“It was at the conclusion of the graduation itself and we had parties who were leaving and they came over to the overflow parking lot, which is here at Mt. Zion High School,” a rep for the police department shared. “Again, it was reported that an argument broke out, which led to 2 individuals being shot.” However, he refused to provide any details on the identity of the shooter or if they’re in custody at the moment.
