The man, who was identified by local media outlets as Mr. Orta, 54, was heading inside the campus when the men drove sped into the school parking lot and opened fire, striking him in the right leg a little after 11:30am.

The Mexico City Public Security Ministry said two individuals with possible ties to the shooting were arrested shortly before 3:30pm local time.

He was taken to a local hospital. Doctors said his injuries were not life threatening.
