Police were responding to reports of gunfire at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas on Friday and the school district said it was on lockdown because of an incident involving an active shooter.

Galveston County Sheriff's Maj.

Santa Fe Independent School District says someone started shooting this morning and the district is now on lockdown. They're promising to release more information as soon as possible.

The district didn't provide further details.

Students are telling FOX 26 that a random fire drill went off and then several shots were heard.

The student said she didn't get a good look at the shooter because she was running away.

Authorities have not yet confirmed that report. She is now sheltering with other students and teachers near campus.

Houston-area media reported that the Harris County and Galveston County sheriff's offices were also sending deputies to the scene, and that a medical Life Flight was called to the school. A law enforcement officer was wounded.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have also responded to the school. Santa Fe police swept the campus but found no threat. Santa Fe is roughly 36 miles outside of Houston.
