Police are responding to a high school in Texas after a gunman was reported on campus.

The Santa Fe school district near Houston issued an alert saying Santa Fe High School had been placed on lockdown.

Galveston County Sheriff’s Major Douglas Hudson said units are responding to reports of shots fired. He had no immediate details on whether anyone had been hurt.

Santa Fe is a city of about 13,000 residents, 30 miles south east of Houston.

One student told Houston television station KTRK in a telephone interview 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.

Authorities have not yet confirmed that report.
