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.

    Another day, another mass murder. But instead of instituting and enforcing meaningful security measures, people want to use these killings as an excuse to confiscate guns.

    May God rest the souls of the dead and give comfort to their loved ones. And may the wounded recover quickly,
