Police said this was not a random act of violence and that the suspect allegedly got into a fight before drawing the weapon.

A teacher said he heard the shooting and barricaded in a classroom with his students.

The “all clear” was given at the school following a lockdown. Students are being escorted to another building to be reunited with their families, the Mansfield Independent School District said.

ATF officials are at the scene and we will update this story as details are released.
