CHAMPS Charter High School for the Arts has been placed under lockdown after a reported shooting in the area around their campus.

As officials have stated, the call came in around 12:15, Sept. 20, that shots had been fired at the Jack in the Box across the street from the school.

There are two confirmed victims, though the victims’ ages and the severity of their injuries is unclear at this point. However, both victims appeared to be alert and sitting up as they were rolled out on gurneys.

One shooter has been apprehended, but officials are still looking for the other suspect.
