A Texas high school was on lockdown on Friday after a person with a gun had fired several shots.

The shooting at Santa Fe high school was reported just before 8 a.m. local time (9 a.m ET) and Galveston County sheriff's deputies were on the scene while ATF agents were en route, authorities said.

A Facebook post by the Santa Fe School District states that "the situation is active, but has been contained."

It also adds that "there have been confirmed injuries."

"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," it said.
