A hospital has confirmed patients from the school, and medical helicopters have been spotted at the school, CNN reported.

A high school in the Houston area is on lockdown amid reports of an active shooter.

Assistant principal says shooter at Texas high school "has been arrested and secured", no comment on possible injuries. "We will send out additional information as soon as it is available", the statement read.

Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trouchesset said authorities are still trying to determine if there is more than one shooter. She said some students believe they heard shots fired, and that she was sheltering with other students and teachers near campus.

The district didn't provide further details.
