LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a shooting at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville.

School spokeswoman Sally Ramey says the victim was shot on the roof of the campus parking deck and has been taken to the Gwinnett Medical Center. Details on the person’s identity and medical condition weren’t immediately available.

Ramey says campus police determined the shooting was an isolated incident and the weapon was recovered at the scene. Ramey says an alert was sent throughout the campus community and that a lockdown wasn’t necessary.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is helping to probe the shooting and information on the circumstances that led to the gunfire weren’t immediately available.

Lawrenceville is about 30 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta.
