An Arapahoe High School shooting has left at least two people injured. Arapahoe High School is in Colorado, about 8 miles from Columbine High School where there was a mass shooting in 1999. According to Huffington Post, the scene is still considered active. As of 1:15 p.m. local time, the county sheriff said that he believed that the gunman was still inside the school.

Early unofficial reports on Twitter suggest that the shooter has been shot. The severity of this unconfirmed shooting and the other two shootings are unknown but police are working diligently to ensure that students and staff get out of the school buildings safely (see photo).

The Arapahoe High School shooting was first reported around 1 p.m. local time. Some reports claim that students heard gunfire and others reported seeing a fire. At this time, police have said that two people are injured, one critically, and that the situation is still very fluid.

There are 2,000 students enrolled at Arapahoe High School. It is unknown if the gunman is a student there.

Story developing.

Update: One student shot, seriously injured already in surgery. The gunman shot himself and is dead.
