A male staff member was shot in Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore City on Friday, police and district officials said.

The victim, a 56-year-old hall monitor, was hospitalized and listed in "serious but stable" condition, police officials said.

The school was put on lockdown after the shooting, and a suspect has already been taken into custody.

All of the students are safe, and classes would be dismissed early so police could continue their investigation, Baltimore City Schools said.

He was quickly arrested by school police officers with the Baltimore City School Department, authorities said.

Students have been released from the school for the day. We only learned about the shooting from a cousin who works for the school system. The officers were working in the school at the time of the shooting.

Sgt. Clyde Boatwright, president of Baltimore's school police union, said there was no telling what the gunman might have done if one unarmed law enforcer and two unarmed officers weren't nearby when the violence erupted.

The victim was later identified as Michael Marks, a special education assistant at the school, Baltimore's Fox 45 reported.

'My question is: How does that 10-0 vote look now?' Boatwright asked outside the school. The suspect is in his 20s, officials said during a press conference.
