MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A juvenile was shot in the hand during a private event at a Mobile middle school.

Local news outlets report the incident happened Monday evening at Pillans Middle School.

Mobile County Public School System spokeswoman Rena Philips says a community basketball team was using the school’s gym when a fight broke out between two adults and a gun discharged, grazing the child’s hand. The juvenile was taken to the hospital for the injury. No word yet on the child’s condition.

Philips says the child who was shot wasn’t a Pillans Middle School student. She also says the community basketball league is not affiliated with the school system.

She says the MCPSS does rent out school facilities to community groups for private events to be held when classes aren’t in session.
