Shooting at high school leaves student shot

DALLAS, TX – An unfortunate shooting incident transpired at Wilmer-Hutchins High School in Dallas Friday morning, leaving one student injured. The Dallas Independent School District (ISD) police confirmed that one suspect is in custody, and there is currently no active threat at the campus.

The shooting occurred shortly after 10:30 a.m. at the high school located at 5520 Langdon Road. District police said emergency medical services arrived at the scene before 11 a.m. to transport the injured student to a local hospital. No additional injuries have been reported.

The suspected shooter’s identity and age remain undisclosed. It is also unclear what led to the shooting.

Parents were informed before 1 p.m. that they could pick up their children at the Wilmer-Hutchins High School gym, provided they bring proper identification. The district, demonstrating an understanding of the tough circumstances, deployed counselors to offer support for those in need.

Unfortunately, disagreements between the ISD’s message and parents rose. While the ISD urged parents not to approach the campus in an 11:15 a.m. message on Facebook, parents contested that it was their children who alerted them about the shooting first. Frustration swelled as parents questioned the delayed messages and the lack of notification about the school lockdown.
