Student Wounded in Texas High School Shooting; Suspect in Custody, Police Say”

The 17-year-old says she saw the cafeteria doors fly open and a rush of students running out after a girl was shot.

Other students were prevented from immediately leaving the campus after the shooting, partly in keeping with active shooter drills the school had conducted in the past, Joffre said. There is only one high school in the town.

Video from Texas Sky Ranger showed police surrounding Italy High School, where students were being evacuated to a neighboring building.

Fitzgerald and school district superintendent Lee Joffre said at a news conference that they don't know the relationship between the boy and girl. The suspect, a 16-year-old male, was taken into custody without incident.

Joffre would not say whether the suspect had any previous disciplinary issues at the school.

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

Italy, which promotes itself as "The Biggest Little Town In Texas", has about 2,000 residents and is located just off Interstate 35 between Dallas and Waco.

The Ellis County Sheriff's Office tweeted, "The kids are being moved, under guard to the dome as the investigation continues". "There has been a victim transported to the hospital", he said, adding that "all junior high and high students are safe and will be transported" to another school, WFAA reported.
