A situation involving an active shooter at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas, occurred Friday morning, according to local authorities.

The Santa Fe School District said in a statement that it initiated a lockdown after an active shooter incident at the high school.

In late February, the school was briefly placed on lockdown over "popping sounds" thought to be gunshots that were heard outside.

A spokesman for the police department in Santa Fe, about 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Houston, said officers were "still establishing the scene".

No injuries or deaths have been reported. It said it would send out more information as soon as it was available.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez reported that he has units en route to assist in the incident. A student tells ABC13 she saw a gunman shoot a girl.

The student said she didn't get a good look at the shooter because she was running away.

At least one life flight helicopter was on the scene, according to The Houston Chronicle. She said students escaped through a door at the back of the classroom.

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have also responded to the school.

"We're now in protect mode as a precaution because of reports of a shooting at Santa Fe HS".

Santa Fe is located between Houston and Galveston.
