The victims of the shooting outside Carver Vocational Technical High School were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Three teenagers were injured Friday morning in a shooting outside Carver Vocational Technical High School in Baltimore.

WBAL-TV reports that the shooting took place in the plaza leading to the school's front door at about 7:50 a.m. Police said officers arrived at the scene within minutes and began treating the wounded.

Acting Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Jones said two teenage students were injured and taken to a hospital. Jones said a third teenager went to a hospital on their own. Police said the injured were two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old.

The two 15-year-olds wounded in the incident face charges of attempted murder, police say.

In addition, the parents of one of the 15-year-olds--William Dredden, 40, and Tiffany Harrison 37--have been charged with assault.

Court papers stated that Dredden and Harrison came to school with their son and allegedly began assaulting another teen. Dredden also has been accused of pistol-whipping the teen.

The son then allegedly took out a gun and got into a gun battle with another 15-year-old and 16-year-old.

All three victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were treated at a local hospital, police said.

All afterschool activities were canceled, and Carver's football game was postponed.
