Student injured in shooting at Texas school

A SCHOOLGIRL has been airlifted to hospital after a teen gunman stormed a high school in Texas this afternoon shooting one person and sparking a massive police call out.

ECSO posted to Facebook an update saying students, under police guard, were being moved as the investigation continues.

The sheriff's office tweeted just before 8:30 a.m. that the suspect had been arrested after the shooting in Italy, Texas. Neither knew the girl's condition, and Parkland spokeswoman April Foran said she could give no information.

Ellis County Commissioner Paul D. Perry said on social media that an unidentified 15-year-old female student was shot and wounded.

Students from nearby Stafford Elementary School have also been evacuated. It had 281 students enrolled a year ago.
