A fight at the Stellar Leadership Academy in Northwest Miami-Dade today lead to a gun going off, the victim in stable condition at a nearby hospital, and five teenage students in custody.

The charter school, located at 7900 NW 27th Ave., is designed for at-risk youth and, according to its website, "students who are challenged by the traditional approach to learning."

Little is known about the incident right now, but Local 10's news-copter got footage of three of the teens taken into custody facedown on the ground outside the school with zip ties holding their hands behind their back. Five are now in custody and being questioned about the incident.
