The shooter, a male, has been arrested, assistant principal Cris Richardson told the Houston Chronicle.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that one person is in custody and a second has been detained.

The school was placed on lockdown around 8 a.m. following reports of an active shooter on campus, according to Richardson.

One student told TV station KTRK that a gunman came into her first-period art class and started shooting. The student said she saw one girl with blood on her leg as the class evacuated the room.

“We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, ‘Start running,’” the student told the television station.

The student said she didn’t get a good look at the shooter because she was running away. She said students escaped through a door at the back of the classroom.

President Trump tweeted about the incident Friday: “School shooting in Texas. Early reports not looking good. God bless all!”

Santa Fe High School student Dakota Shrader is comforted by her mother, Susan Davidson, following a shooting.
