Multiple people were injured in a school shooting Wednesday morning at Timberview High School in Arlington, Texas, police said.

Kevin Kolbye, the Arlington Police Department’s assistant chief, said there were four victims in total from the shooting. He said three of the victims were taken to the hospital and the other victim refused treatment.

Police said in a press conference that three of the victims were students and one was an older person, though it’s unclear if the latter victim was a teacher or other staff member.

Kolbye said they’ve identified a suspect, Timothy George Simpkins, 18, but have been unable to find him. He said the working narrative at the moment is that the shooting occurred after a fight broke out between students on Wednesday morning.

The Mansfield Independent School District said in a letter to parents on Wednesday morning that students were on lockdown and police were responding to the situation.

In another letter, the school district said an “all-clear” was given and students were being reunited with their families.

A woman on Twitter said her daughter sent her this video from the scene:
