At least one person has been shot and one is killed in a Texas high school, according to a new report. The report also claims that authorities believe there are two shooters on the loose after the horrific incident.
UPDATE: It has been confirmed by Brewster County officials to CNN that one person is dead in connection with the shooting at Texas’ Alpine High School. The person has not been identified, but several reports believe the deceased is one of the two reported shooters, according to ABC News and local news affiliate, Alpine Avalanche.
Sadly, there has been another shooting inside a school — this time at Alpine High School in Western Texas on Thursday, September 8, according to CNN. The school is reportedly on lockdown as authorities search for the shooters, as it is being reported that not one, but two suspects could be on the loose.
At this time details are limited as the situation is still unfolding, but we can reveal that the school is located in Brewster County just 22 miles southeast of El Paso, Texas. It is also located just north of the Mexican border.
Police have yet to release any information about the victim, though it is being reported that the victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, according to the NY Daily News. According to the school’s website, classes started for approximately 280 students on August 22.
Thankfully, The Alpine Avalanche has been providing updates for concerned parents and loved ones in the area on their Facebook page. At 10:16am local time they posted that the school was on lockdown, and at 10:40am they posted a photo showing students and faculty being evacuated, then shared that they would be released near the Jehovah’s Witness church as soon as authorities said it was okay.
