LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) -- Two students were shot outside a Las Vegas high school Tuesday, a school police official said.

Lt. Ken Young said the shooting outside Western High School appeared to be a kind of "road-rage" incident in which a suspect followed the victims to school and shot them in the parking lot.

The students were taken to University Medical Center, Young said. Their injuries were not life-threatening. (Watch how a surveillance tape might give a lead on the suspect Video)

CNN affiliate KVBC reported the shooting stemmed from a verbal altercation at a convenience store near the school.

The suspect has not been apprehended, Young said.

Leslie Russell, dean of students, told CNN that police were finishing their investigation and classes were being held as usual.

Police cordon off a section of the parking lot at Western High School Tuesday in Las Vegas.
