A gunman opened fire at a high school in Italy, Texas, on Monday, police said.
Details of the shooting were scarce, and the authorities did not release any other information about the attack, but it appeared that the one person involved had been apprehended by police.
The Italy High School was placed under lockdown, as well as the Stafford Elementary School, in reaction to the shooting. Children at the Italy High School were being moved out of the building under police protection.
The Ellis County Sheriff's Office confirmed the shooting on Twitter. "Italy TX school shooting. Suspect in custody. More information to come," it wrote.
"The kids are being moved, under guard to the dome as the investigation continues. SHOOTER IS IN CUSTODY," it added.
Police said that more information would be available later on Monday as events become clearer.
Italy is located 44 miles south of the city of Dallas.
There have been 13 mass shootings in the U.S. so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
