Three ninth graders were injured in a reported drive-by shooting near Carol City Middle School Friday afternoon.

School board officials said two 15-year-olds and a 14-year-old were hit by gunfire off-campus.
The shooting happened near the school, which is located in the area of Northwest 188th Street and 37th Avenue.
One victim was shot on 188th Street and the other two were shot one block away on 187th Street and 35th Avenue. Police said a person jumped out of a small, white SUV and began shooting.
Carol City Middle School and Barbara Hawkins Elementary School and Carol City High School were put on lockdown as a precaution.

The three ninth graders were taken to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The shooting happened just hours after a van carrying school children was shot up in northwest Miami-Dade.
