Gunman in custody after teacher is wounded at Texas elementary school

A gunman is in police custody after a teacher at a Texas elementary school was wounded, prompting a school district-wide lockdown.

Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas went on lockdown and announced the “active gunman” had barricaded himself inside the building.

Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin and the Texas Department of Public Safety told Fox News that the shooter was responsible for the school before opening fire and locking himself inside.

“There is one active shooter at Robb Elementary. The police are on site,” the school wrote in a post on Facebook. “Your cooperation is required at this time by not visiting campus.”

“Students from Robb Elementary School will be transported to the Willie DeLeon Civic Center for the reunion,” the school later added.

The lockdown was first reported at 11.43am local time by the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District.

The school is approximately 80 miles west of San Antonio, Texas.
