One person was injured and taken to the hospital after a shooting Tuesday afternoon at Thomas Jefferson High School in North Dallas.

Dallas police said a call came in around 4:40 p.m. at the Dallas Independent School District campus, located at 4001 Walnut Ln.

It appears that a student was shot in the arm shortly after the end of the school day, WFAA reported.

There is currently a heavy police and fire-rescue presence in the area and the campus is on lockdown. As the shooting occurred on DISD property, the DISD Police Department will be leading the investigation.

No arrests have been made yet, Fox 4 reported.

The Dallas Express reached out to DISD for more information but could not immediately reach a district spokesperson.

    Well, clearly there aren’t enough guns in America to protect us all from the amount of people having access to guns!

    You know, there is no child that should have access to firearms, period.

    Though they do not state who did the shooting? As for this, it will be used as fuel to disarm good citizens I am sure.

    It’s a shame that someone would want to harm a child, with a firearm, knife or any other instrument that can inflict bodily harm or injury. I hope the kiddo is okay.
    Back when I was a child things like this just did not happen that often, shootings in general. It seems that we are reading about someone getting shot everyday now.

    Taking firearms away from the good people is not the answer, as I have already stated, this will be used by the left as fuel for their agenda to disarm the “good” citizens of our great nation. Unfortunately they are going after the wrong people.
    I hope they get the trigger man, be it man, woman or child they should be charged and prosecuted to the fullest.

    Prayers to the kiddo for a speedy recovery and healing and to the family.
