The district didn't provide further details.

"We were all standing (outside), but not even five minutes later, we started hearing gunshots", she said. It's still unclear whether that shooter has been taken into custody, according to a report from ABC13.

The student said she didn't get a good look at the shooter because she was running away. Life Flight was also called to the scene. This is an unconfirmed report.

There was a large law enforcement response to the same school in February when it was placed on lockdown after students and teachers said they heard "popping sounds". Police arrived on campus to investigate but no threat was found.

The report about the shooting came in just before 8 a.m. Friday from the school located about 30 miles southeast of Houston.
