Student, 16, shot in parking lot of Texas high school

Another student has been charged in the incident outside Atascocita High School in the Humble district; victim is expected to recover.

A 16-year-old student allegedly buying marijuana was shot and wounded Thursday night in the parking lot of a suburban Houston high school.

KTRK-TV reports that the victim, an 11th grader whose identity was not disclosed, suffered foot and hip injuries, but is expected to recover.

The incident happened in the parking lot of Atascocita High School, which is in unincorporated Harris County and the Humble Independent School District.

The Harris County Sheriff's Police say the victim was buying marijuana from another student, 17, when that student opened fire.

Mikael Neciosup, 17, has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault. School officials confirm that Neciosup is also an Atascocita High School student.

Authorities say Neciosup was seen after the shooting in Snapchat videos appearing to reference the shooting and boasting about it.

The Humble school district issued a statement concerning the incident:

"An 11th grade male AHS student was shot in the AHS parking lot tonight at approximately 6:20 p.m. The 11th grader is expected to recover. He was wounded in the foot and hip. At time of transport, he was talking and alert.

At the time of the incident, there were about 85 students on the campus for athletic and fine arts activities. Students were kept safe in their areas until released by police, as a routine procedure.

Extra security is on hand at the high school campus Friday.
