Police say Teah Wimberly shot 15-year-old Amanda Collette during an argument at Dillard High School while students were changing classes Wednesday morning. Wimberly was charged with first-degree murder and discharging a weapon on school property.

Collette's body was found on a hallway floor. She was shot in the torso.
