Two students injured in shooting at Lamar High School in Arlington, Texas

Arlington Police have completed the search for Lamar High School and will begin releasing the students shortly.

According to Arlington ISD, all students will be bused to a reunification center at the AISD Athletics Center (1001 E. Division Street) where parents/guardians can pick them up beginning at 12:00 p.m.

All family members who come to the Reunification Center must bring photo ID and enter the building through the Natatorium.

UPDATE (9:15 a.m.):

At approximately 6:55 a.m. this morning, the Arlington Police Department responded to the Lamar High School campus after receiving multiple reports of gunfire just outside the school building.

Two students were injured and are currently receiving medical treatment.

We don’t believe the alleged shooter ever entered the school. Officers were able to locate and take this individual into custody shortly after arriving at the scene.

Again, our partners at Arlington ISD will post additional student release information once the lockdown at Lamar HS has been lifted.
