Texas high school has been placed on lockdown following reports of a shooting

According to a Dallas-area school district, law enforcement is responding to reports of a “active shooter situation” at a high school.

Timberview High School was placed on lockdown Wednesday morning, according to the Mansfield Independent School District. The school is located in Arlington, Texas, which is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

A spokeswoman for the Arlington Police Department said officers responded to a shooting at the school, but she couldn’t confirm whether anyone was injured. The police department stated on Twitter that officers were conducting a “methodical search” in collaboration with other law enforcement agencies.

According to police, a reunification center has been established for students and their families.

According to the district, students and staff were locked in their classrooms or offices.

Timberview serves approximately 1,900 students in grades 9 through 12. The sprawling complex first opened its doors in 2004.

A line of ambulances and fire department vehicles was visible on live TV outside the school, but no people were seen being treated for injuries.

The report came just days after a shooting at a Houston charter school in which an administrator was injured. In May of 2018, a then-17-year-old armed with a shotgun and a pistol opened fire at Santa Fe High School near Houston, killing ten people, the majority of whom were students.
