This morning an incident occurred at the high school involving an active shooter. The situation is active, but has been contained. There have been confirmed injuries. Details will be released as we receive updated information. Law enforcement will continue to secure the building and initiate all emergency management protocols to release and move students to another location. All other campuses are operating under their regular schedules….The district will continue to keep you updated as information is available. Safety and communication are our top priorities.
CNN quoted MaKenna Evans, a 16-year-old sophomore at Santa Fe High School, as saying she was in geometry class when the shooting started.
The students first heard the alarm and ran outside, she said, but her principal told them all to run.
Evans said students hid behind a building across the street from the school. Her aunt called and told her there was a shooting, CNN reported.
Dr. Cris Richardson, assistant principal of Santa Fe High School told reporters there was an active shooting at the school, and “that person has been arrested.”
Richardson could not comment on injuries.
