The Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas says it’s on lockdown Tuesday as law enforcement is responding to an “active shooter.” 

The Texas Department of Public Safety and Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin told Fox News that one person has been shot and the shooter – who ran to the school – became barricaded inside it. 

“There is an active shooter at Robb Elementary. Law enforcement is on site,” the school posted on Facebook. “Your cooperation is needed at this time by not visiting the campus.”

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District first reported a lockdown at Robb Elementary at 11:43 a.m. local time. 


“Please know at this time all campuses are under a Lockdown Status due to gunshots in the area. The students and staff are safe in the buildings,” the district had said in a message to parents. 

Robb Elementary is about 80 miles west of San Antonio.
