At least one person is dead after a shooting near a high school in Georgia.

Officials say shots were fired in the carpark of Mt Zion High School, south of Atlanta, on Friday night (local time).

NBC news station 11 Alive reports three victims were involved in the shooting. A 21-year-old was shot in the leg and taken to hospital. Another woman, who is pregnant, was injured when she was pushed.

The third victim was a woman in her 40s, who died in hospital after being shot three times in the chest, officials told 11 Alive.

A video posted to Twitter shows police cars at the scene.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting are not yet known and it's not clear whether the shooter has been taken into custody.

It comes after a fatal shooting at a school in Texas earlier on Friday, where at least 10 people were killed.
