CNN shooting

One person is dead after shooting a student at Alpine High School in Alpine, Texas on Thursday morning, several news outlets have reported. 

The shooter died from an apparently self-inflicted wound, ABC News is reporting.

The student who was shot is still alive, ABC News reported. A law-enforcement officer was also shot in what Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson called an accidental shooting.

Two active shooters were initially believed to be on the loose, CNN reported via the Brewster County Sheriff’s office. Reports do not indicate whether police are searching for a second suspect.

BigBendNow.com first reported the active shooter alert at around 9:40 a.m. local time.

The Big Bend Regional Medical Center states that “no deaths have been reported at this time,” according to CBS 7.

All three schools in the western Texas city of 6,000 have been put on lockdown, the Associated Press reported. Alpine is about 220 miles southeast of El Paso.
