The shooting happened about 5 p.m. Monday, while students in the extended-day program were still inside Pleasant Hill Elementary School. The Osceola County Sheriff's Office says 44-year-old John Maya was taken into custody and will be charged with attempted murder and aggravated domestic battery. Detectives recovered a handgun they believe was used in the shooting.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the parents have a child at the school. That child is currently staying with relatives. The Department of Children and Families will investigate.

After the shooting, officials say students from the extended care program were escorted to the front of the school, where parents picked them up.

The woman's condition was not available.
