Authorities received a 911 call about an active shooter at the school just before 1 a.m., McCabe said. More than a hundred 911 calls came in to send, he told reporters.

The shooter fired at least a dozen shots before the suspect was arrested.

“Deputies responded and within five minutes had the suspect in custody,” McCabe said. “He did not cause any problems. He gave up the weapon. He did not have the weapon with him then.”

Authorities did not say what led to the shooting, and McCabe told reporters that the suspect “invoked his right not to speak.” Police spoke briefly with the suspect’s parents, who McCabe said advised her son not to speak to police.

“He’s not telling us anything at the moment,” he said.

The suspect is being held at a juvenile facility, but he could be relocated if charged as an adult.
