The school is Santa Fe High School.

From New York Post, May 18, 2018:

At least eight people were killed when a shooter opened fire on a high school near Houston on Friday, according to reports.

 

A law enforcement officer was also wounded in the gunfire, according to KHOU11 News

.

The shooter, a male, has been arrested, according to the Houston Chronicle.

 

The school was placed on lockdown around 8 a.m. following reports of the active shooter on campus, according to assistant principal Cris Richardson.

 

One student told TV station KTRK that a gunman came into her first-period art class and started shooting. The student said she saw one girl with blood on her leg as the class evacuated the room.

 

“We thought it was a fire drill at first but really, the teacher said, ‘Start running,’” the student told the television station.

 

The student said she didn’t get a good look at the shooter because she was running away. She said students escaped through a door at the back of the classroom.
