CBS News reports that several officers are on the scene, but thus far have no further details.

Meanwhile, KHOU in Houston, which is near Santa Fe, reports that at least one student has been taken to the hospital via Life Flight.

Life Flight has responded to a school in Santa Fe where there are reports of a shooter at the high school.

Both Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office and the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office say they are assisting in response to reports of a shooting at Santa Fe High School.

The school is located at 16000 Highway 6, about 30 miles southeast of Houston.

 

KHOU also reports that some students say they were evacuated down the street. Other reports, these unconfirmed, say describe an exchange of gunfire between police and the suspect.

Local law enforcement aren’t the only ones responding either. According to the ATF’s Twitter account, the agency is responding as well.

According to ABC13, the incident started around 7:30 in an art class.

Santa Fe High School is on lockdown after a situation with an active shooter on campus. Witnesses say the shooting took place in an art class on campus between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m.

A student tells ABC13 she saw a gunman shoot a girl. This is an unconfirmed report.

Sophomore Leila Butler tells ABC13 that at about 7:45 a.m. fire alarms went off and students left their classrooms. She reports some students believe they’ve heard shots fired. She is currently sheltering with other students and teachers near campus.

Now, what does this all mean? At this point, we don’t know. This situation is developing as we speak and to call it fluid wouldn’t be an exaggeration. We’re still trying to gather any and all information we can on the subject and will share them with you just as soon as we find out anything.

However, we should caution everyone to remember that initial news reports are often very wrong. It’s because the whole situation is confusing for the victims and they share that confusion with the media who then reports it to a news-hungry audience. This could be nothing to speak of or it could be something horrific. At this point, we don’t know.

What we do know is that we will continue to monitor this situation as it develops. Check back here for more news.
