At Least 4 Injured in Texas High School Shooting, Police Say
A shooting at a high school in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday left four people injured, including three taken to a hospital, the authorities said.
Assistant Chief Kevin Kolbye of the Arlington Police Department said that the police were called to Timberview High School at about 9:15 a.m. after reports of a shooting on the second floor of the building after a fight.
Three of the people who were injured were taken to the hospital, he said. The fourth had light injuries and declined treatment. Three of the victims were students and one was an older person, he said, adding that he believed two of the victims had gunshot wounds.
All three people taken to the hospital “are OK at this point in time,” Chief Kolbye said at a Wednesday afternoon news conference. One student had undergone surgery and was in intensive care, he said. A second victim was in good condition and a third who might have been grazed by a bullet was expected to be released from the hospital on Wednesday, he said.
