Shots fired at Hawaii high school; possible injuries reported

Gunfire erupted at a Hawaii high school on Tuesday, possibly injuring up to two people, and a 17-year-old was taken into custody after the incident on the Honolulu school campus, police said.

Honolulu police spokeswoman Teresa Bell said the situation was under control and that two people had "maybe" been injured after the morning shooting at Roosevelt High School, although their injuries were not life-threatening.

The school posted a statement on its website saying that the "situation at Roosevelt is under control" and that police were wrapping up their investigation.

"Again, the situation is under control. Please remain calm," the school said in its statement.

A second statement said that students would be released at 10 a.m. and could be picked up at the football field.

The Honolulu Advertiser said more than a dozen police cars and at least one ambulance responded to the high school, which has about 1,400 students.
