ARLINGTON, Texas — A Dallas-area school district says that law enforcement is responding to reports of an “active shooter situation” at a high school.
The Mansfield Independent School District says in a news release that Timberview High School is on lockdown. The school is in Arlington, which is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
An Arlington Police Department spokeswoman says officers responded to a shooting at the school, but that she can’t confirm whether there were any injuries. The police department says on Twitter that officers are doing a “methodical search” and are working closely with other law enforcement agencies.
The district said that students and staff are locked in the classrooms or offices.
The report comes just days after a shooting at a Houston charter school that injured an administrator.
