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.
