Two students injured in a shooting at Lamar High School in Arlington, Texas

All students on campus are being taken to the AISD Athletic Center.



Arlington Police have completed the search of Lamar High School and will begin releasing students shortly.

Per Arlington ISD, all students will be bussed to a Reunification Center at the AISD Athletics Center (1001 E. Division Street) where parents / guardians can pick them up starting at 12:00pm.

All family members coming to the Reunification Center should bring a photo ID with them — and enter the building through the Natatorium.

UPDATE (9:15am):

At around 6:55 this morning, the Arlington Police Department responded to the Lamar High School campus after we received multiple reports of shots fired just outside of the school building.

Two students were injured and are now receiving medical care.

We do not believe the suspected shooter ever entered the school. Officers were able to locate and take that individual into custody shortly after arriving on scene.

The school day does not typically begin until 7:35am — and so school was not in session and not all students had arrived on campus when this incident occurred.

Again, our partners at Arlington ISD will be releasing additional information about student release once the lockdown at Lamar HS has been lifted.

Original Report:

This morning, we responded to Lamar High School to investigate a reported shooting that occurred outside of the school building.

The scene is now secure and we have the suspected shooter in custody.

Parents, please look out for information from our partners at Arlington ISD regarding student release. Lamar High School is currently on lockdown and you will not be allowed on campus. Although there is no longer any active threat, per our protocols, officers must clear the entire building, which could take some time.
