Two teenage brothers were shot at Wet & Wild Sunday afternoon when a fight broke out among groups of high school students who had gathered for a day at the park. The boys, 18 and 19, were shot with a small caliber pistol. Their injuries -- one was hit in the mouth and the other in the leg -- were not life-threatening, according to police.
About 1,600 high schoolers from South Florida were at the park as part of a trip organized by a private company. Orlando police said the shooting happened when teens from two rival high schools began arguing. Police found a .22-caliber pistol on one of 30 buses used to transport the teens but aren't sure if it is the weapon that was used in the shooting.
Details are sketchy and police are still trying to sort out details. There is no suspect in the shooting and the injured boys have not been identified.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
In my high school we used to get in fist fights with our rival high schools.
