ABC 15 reports that multiple people have died as a result of a shooting on Friday morning. 

The shooting took place at a southeastern Texas high school located in Santa Fe. This is the third school shooting in the past seven days, and many more have taken place in the United States since the beginning of the year.

So far, at least 8 people are dead. The suspect has been arrested and a second person, who is believed to be an accomplice, has also been detained.

Reports claim that the students were running throughout the school when they first heard gunshots. They also began to hear an alarm at the school, although it is unclear exactly what happened and the sequence of events isn't currently clear, according to CNN.

"We were all standing (outside), but not even five minutes later, we started hearing gunshots," said one student. "And then everybody starts running, but like the teachers are telling us to stay put, but we're all just running away."

"I didn't see anybody shooting, but like (the gunshots) were kind of spaced," the student added.

Students first heard gunshots after an armed person — holding what looked like a shotgun —entered a classroom and began to shoot. The students trapped in the room saw each other get shot. One witness, for example, told KTRK that she vividly remembers seeing one of her classmates get shot in the leg. 

Patients from the school are currently being rushed to the hospital. It is not clear what kind of injuries have resulted as a result of the shooting, but it is clear that numerous students are injured. At least one police officer was also injured. 

The entire school district is currently on lockdown.

President Trump has responded to the situation. 

"School shooting in Texas. Early reports not looking good. God bless all!" Trump said.
