UVALDE, Texas (AP) – Texas police say a gunman who caused an elementary school to be locked down has been taken into custody.
Uvalde Police said the person was arrested just after 1pm on Tuesday. The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District has reported an active shooter at Robb Elementary School, which has nearly 600 students. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Earlier, the district said all schools in the district were closed due to gunfire in the area.
A dispatcher from the Uvalde Police Department said the scene was still active and no further information was immediately available.
School and city officials did not immediately respond for comment.
The district said the city’s civic center will be used as a reunion center and parents can pick up their children there once everyone is accounted for.
Uvalde is approximately 85 miles (135 kilometers) west of San Antonio.
