- A 15-year-old girl was injured in a shooting at Italy High School on Monday morning and a 16-year-old boy has been arrested.

It's unclear what led to the shooting. Neither knew the girl's condition, and Parkland spokeswoman April Foran said she could give no information.

The Ellis County Sheriff's Office didn't immediately say if anyone was wounded in the shooting, which happened sometime before 8:30 a.m. local time.

Joffre said school will be in session Tuesday and grief counselors will be on campus.

A shootout was reported at a Texas high school in the United States on Monday. Ellis County Sheriff's Office now has a 16-year-old male suspect, a fellow IHS student, in custody.

Italy High School had 281 students a year ago, according to the Texas Tribune, with students enrolled from grades 6-12.

Joffre said the district is now working to reunite parents with their children. The 17-year-old says she saw the cafeteria doors fly open and a rush of students running out. "Suspect in custody. More information to come", it wrote.

Officials at Stafford Elementary School told WFAA it was placed on lockdown. Assisting at the scene was Italy Police Department, Ellis County Sheriff's Office, Hill County Sheriff's Office, Department of Public, and the Texas Rangers.
