WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (AP) - Two Orlando-area high school students got into a fight Wednesday at the bus pickup area and one of them opened fire, wounding the other, police said.

A 17-year-old student from West Orange High School was taken into custody while a 15-year-old had injuries to his face and stomach, police and school officials said. The younger teen, Ja'Roderick Smith, was alert when he was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.

"That student is going to be OK, by all indications," Barbara Jenkins, superintendent of Orange County Public Schools, said at a news conference.

The shooting took place shortly before 1:30 p.m. as students were being dismissed for the day, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said.

The school went on lockdown and close to 100 law enforcement officers showed up, Demings said.

Shortly afterward, students at the high school were bused to another high school where they could be picked up by family members.
