A pair of school shootings Tuesday has left two teenagers injured.
The unrelated incidents, in Kentucky and North Carolina happened hours apart and were quickly contained, according to reports. Only one of the gunmen has been apprehended.
The first shooting happened at around 6:40 a.m., was the culmination of a fight between two male students outside Albemarle (NC) High School, according to WCNC.
Jalen Russell shot Bernard Miller twice, police told the station. He was wounded in the "lower extremities, said police.
Russell immediately surrendered and was taken away.
"In this case we had the suspect immediately in custody," Albemarle Police Chief William Halliburton told WCNC.
School officials told WCNC that Russell placed the gun on the ground and walked to the school's office to turn himself in to the principal.
"He could have done more so the reaction is that we're thankful that he gave himself up," said Halliburton.
The second shooting, at Fern Hill High School in Louisville, Kentucky, happened just after 1:00 p.m., according to reports.
Only one person was injured in the attack, a Louisville Metro Police spokesperson confirmed to AOL News. That victim is expected to survive.
The shooter immediately fled the scene and has not yet been apprehended, police told media gathered outside the school, according to WHAS.
Police were shown in footage from WHAS and WDRB quickly descending on the school.
Students could be seen leaving the school single-file with their hands over their heads.
Neither the victim, nor the shooter, have been identified.
More information will come as it is made available.
