ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A Dallas-area school district says law enforcement is responding to reports of an “active shooter situation” at a high school.

The Mansfield Independent School District says Timberview High School was on lockdown Wednesday morning.

The school is in Arlington, which is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. The district said in a statement that students and staff were locked in the classrooms or offices.

An Arlington Police Department spokeswoman said officers responded to a shooting at the school, but she couldn’t confirm whether there were any injuries.

The reports come just days after a shooting at a Houston charter school that injured an administrator.
