At least eight fatalities have been reported Friday after a shooter opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
Federal and local law enforcement told local media that a suspect is in custody after at least eight people were killed and an officer — as well as multiple students — were injured.
CBS News reported that 10 people had died in the attack, and local Sheriff Ed Gonzalez indicated at a press conference that the death count was likely to fall between eight and 10.
He said one person is in custody and a second one has been detained following the shooting.
“One male is in custody. And then a second one, again, was a person of interest. Both are believed to be students here at the school,” Gonzalez said.
Houston-area media reported the school went on lockdown around 8 a.m. after someone entered the campus carrying what appeared to be a shotgun and opened fire, a student told ABC13.
Shaken students told a local NBC affiliate they heard several shots rang out after a fire alarm went off just before 8 a.m.
