OCALA , Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say one student shot another in the ankle at a Florida high school and a suspect is in custody.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports the shooting happened Friday morning at Forest High School which was on lockdown. The injured student was taken to a local hospital.  A spokesman for the school now says the student was shot in the ankle. 

Police say the suspected shooter is also a student at the school.

The shooting comes on the day of a National School Walkout against gun violence. It's been more than two months after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and teachers were killed.
