Authorities say an ISD student in Dallas was injured in a shooting Tuesday afternoon at Thomas Jefferson High School in the Dallas Independent School District.
Confirmed Dallas police officers were called to report the shooting at 4:40 p.m. on a campus located along the 4000 block of Walnut Hill Lane in northwest Dallas.
ISD Dallas spokeswoman Robin Harris said the student was shot in the arm and hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The shooting occurred about 10 minutes after the students were disbanded for the day.
Harris said she was not aware of any arrests as of Tuesday evening, but added that a police investigation is ongoing.
She confirmed that the shooter was a student of Thomas Jefferson.
Some students were still on campus at the time of the shooting, causing panic among some parents who rushed to pick up their children.
“This is scary. It’s really, really scary. As a mom, I’m just really scared,” said Beatriz Osorio.
A Dallas police spokesman confirmed that officers were called to the scene for the shooting, but referred further questions to the Dallas ISD.
As a result of the shooting, classes at Thomas Jefferson High School and the nearby campus of Walnut Hill Elementary School were cancelled. Schools will offer counseling services from 10:00 a.m. and distribute food from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.
It came the day after one teenager was killed and another wounded in a gunfight outside Lamar High School in the Arlington Independent School District. The shooter, a 15-year-old boy, was arrested nearby and is being held on charges of capital murder.
