A high school in Texas was on lockdown, and a suspected gunman was in police custody after at least two students were injured in a reported shooting that unfolded outside the building early Monday, according to authorities.
Officers responded to Lamar High School in Arlington to investigate multiple reports of a shooting and secured the scene, the Arlington Police Department said.
Two students suffered injuries and were receiving medical care, police said in a statement. No updates on their conditions were immediately available.
The suspected shooter was taken into custody shortly after officers arrived at the scene, police said, adding that no details about the suspect were immediately available.
Police said more information about the shooting would be released later.
Police said the incident happened around 6:55 a.m. outside the school building, police said. Not all students were on campus at the time of the shooting since the school day does not begin until 7:35 a.m.
Parents were asked not to come to the school during the lockdown since they will not be allowed on campus. Police said the entire school building must be cleared before the lockdown is lifted.
Students and staff will be sent home once the lockdown is lifted, Arlington school district officials said, according to FOX4 Dallas-Fort Worth.
Arlington is located about 28 miles west of Dallas.
