The school district confirmed an unspecified number of people were injured but provided no other details.

School officials said police are working to secure the building “and initiate all emergency management protocols to release and move students to another location”.

Pupils are being transported to another location to be reunited with their parents.

One student told Houston television station KTRK that a gunman came into her first-period class and started shooting. She said she saw one girl with a bloody leg as the class evacuated.
