Two teens shot outside Detroit high school.

Witnesses say robbers have the same basic description.

Two teenagers have been shot outside Detroit's Mumford High School after finishing their first day of class.

Police say the shootings happened about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday just after classes got out. Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens says a 16-year-old boy was shot in the buttocks and a 14-year-old girl was grazed in the eyebrow.

The Mumford students were taken to a nearby hospital but the injuries don't appear to be life-threatening. Police haven't released their names.

Stephens says the shootings stemmed from an argument at the school between the boy and another student they believe was the shooter. She says another student also may have been involved.

No arrests have been made.
