STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. (AP) _ A suspended high school student was shot by a golfer when he and two other teen-agers allegedly tried to rob a foursome at gunpoint on a DeKalb County course, police said.

The student, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday night. Police Sgt. Ron Eunice said the injured youth and the other teens would be charged with attempted robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Eunice said the three accosted a golf cart rounding a curve on a wooded trail at Hidden Hills Golf and Country Club and forced the two occupants to the ground at gunpoint about 4 p.m. Thursday. As a second cart rounded the curve, the driver pulled a gun from his golf bag and fired, striking one of the youths in the face. The other two ran.

The name of the golfer who shot the gun was not released. Police said no changes are planned against him.
