UPDATE: Student Shot at School in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in Memphis say an 11th-grade boy was shot in the arm in a classroom at Manassas High School this morning.

He was treated at the Regional Medical Center for a non-critical injury.

Officials say other students were in the room, but no one else was hurt.

Police arrested another boy, whose mother said he had come home and told her what happened and she brought him back to school to talk to police.

Schools spokeswoman Rita Cooper says police conducted a security sweep of the school and found no other weapons.

Authorities didn't say what kind of weapon was used in the shooting and the names of the victim and suspected shooter were not immediately released.

Classes continue at Manassas, which was locked down for a short time as a precaution.
