Suspect in custody after shooting at Texas high school

Police were seen responding the the active shooting where the suspected gunman was taken into custody

The Austin American-Statesman reported that the shooting occurred at Italy High School, which is roughly 45 miles outside of Dallas.

The shooting happened at the Italy High School, the Austin American-Statesman reports.

The Ellis County sheriff's office announced the shooting on Twitter.

The injured girl, who was not identified, was transported to Parkland Hospital with unknown injuries. Students will be taken by bus to Stafford Elementary to be dismissed when authorities give the OK.

Students were evacuated from the school as police officers responded to the scene.

Officials confirmed in a news conference that the suspect was a student, and he left the school building immediately after firing shots in the cafeteria. He also informed the community that counselors will be provided on campus to speak with students.

Ellis County Commissioner Paul D. Perry said on social media that an unidentified 15-year-old female student was shot and wounded.

Joffre says the district is working to reunite parents with their children.

"This is no longer an active shooter situation", the sheriff's office spokeswoman told The Huffington Post.

There is only one high school in the town.
