(MIDDLETOWN, Ohio) — Four students were injured after a shooter walked into the lunchroom at a Middletown, Ohio school and started firing, authorities said on Monday.

Two of the students were hurt by the shooting and two were injured by flying shrapnel, said Anthony Dwyer, the chief deputy of Butler County Sheriff’s Office.

Dwyer did not provide more information, but the school district said one person was in custody.

None of the injuries are life-threatening, Madison Local Schools said on its Facebook page. The district said all students are safe, but did not elaborate on the incident.

The school was placed on lockdown following the incident, the district said.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office cleared the scene, the district said, adding that students at Madison Junior/Senior High School were being dismissed “as quickly as possible.”

Madison Elementary School students will be dismissed approximately one hour early by bus, the district said.
