ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Two students were injured after a shooting at a Texas high school on Monday and a suspect is in custody, police and school district officials said.
The shooting happened on the Lamar High School campus in Arlington outside a school building, news outlets report.
The school was placed in lockdown and once that is lifted, students will be released for the day, Arlington Independent School District spokeswoman Anita Foster said in an email. Others, including parents, were urged to stay away from the campus while Arlington Police investigate, she said.
Arlington police said the scene was secure in a tweet at 7:21 a.m.
The two injured students were receiving medical care, according to the district.
Their conditions were not known, the Arlington Fire Department said.
Monday was the first day back to class after the district’s spring break last week.
