MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are investigating after a gun was pulled on two teens outside Wooddale Middle School Tuesday.

According to the report, a mother called police after her 17-year-old son came home with a cut above his left eye and bruising to his chest.

The victim said he and a friend were outside the middle school when several people approached them and one of them pulled out a gun. The suspects forced him to fight a member of their group, he said, resulting in the injuries.
