Suspect dead in Texas high school shooting; at least 1 injured

ALPINE, Texas -- Police were responding Thursday morning to a report of a shooter at a Texas high school, police say.

Alpine Police tell Crimesider there is an active shooter at Alpine High School. All schools and administrative offices are on critical lockdown amid the search for a suspect, the school district tells CBS affiliate KOSA.

Alpine is in southwest Texas, around 50 miles from the Mexican border and about 250 miles southeast of San Antonio. The Alpine Independent School District website says the town of about 5,900 residents has three schools - elementary, middle and a high school.

Police dispatcher Scarlet Eldred had no immediate information on whether anyone was hurt in the unspecified incident shortly before 9 a.m. Thursday. She didn’t immediately provide additional information, other than the person was a male.
