The youth, whose name was not made public, also faces counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied property, possession of a firearm on a school campus and trespassing, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies said the boy had fired one round toward the school on Bonanza Drive about 3 p.m. The round went through the driver's door and lodged in the front seat of a car driven by a 17-year-old who was leaving the school with two other people in the car. None of the three was injured.
The 14-year-old fled on foot and was later caught.
Police did not disclose what kind of gun he used.
The shooting stemmed from a dispute that happened near the school earlier Tuesday and involved several teenagers, deputies said in a statement. It is not clear what caused that dispute, they said. They described the driver of the car as "unsuspecting."
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Tanna said the 14-year-old was being held at the Cumberland County Juvenile Detention Center and would be arraigned in Juvenile Court at a date that had not been set Wednesday evening.
