A shooting near a DeKalb County high school prompted an investigation Friday afternoon, officials said.

The gunfire happened near the main exit of McNair High School just before dismissal, a DeKalb school district spokesperson said. Officials did not say who was involved in the shooting or if anyone was detained.

No students or staff were injured.

“The safety and well-being of our students and staff remain a top priority,” the spokesperson said.

About a 30-minute drive from McNair, a 19-year-old woman was carjacked in the parking lot of Lithonia High School last Friday while she was waiting for her younger brother to get out of his last class, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The teen was startled when a man banged on the driver’s-side window and pointed a gun at her, the teen’s mother told the AJC. She got out of the car and the robber drove off, the mother added. No arrests have been made in that case.
