A Hawaii high school shooting has left at least two people injured in Honolulu on Jan. 28. According to the New York Daily News, a suspect is in custody but the school was under lockdown for much of the morning while police worked to clear the scene. At least two people have been taken to nearby hospitals. One person, a 17-year-old male student, was shot in the wrist.

The male student reportedly lunged at officers with a knife. It was police fire that struck and injured him. It is unclear if he is connected to the shooting or if he is the suspected gunman.

The Hawaii high school shooting occurred around 8:30 a.m. and students said they heard someone running through the halls and banging on doors. The school was planning on sending students home around 10 a.m., once the situation was completely under control and police felt confident enough to allow students to leave. Details about what exactly occurred are sparse but knowing that the gunman is in custody is very important and gives people some piece of mind.

"The Honolulu Police Department is wrapping up their investigation. Again, the situation is under control. Please remain calm," read a text message sent out to parents. Obviously this is a frightening situation and it's happening more and more frequently which is even more disturbing.

More on the Hawaii high school shooting when updates become available.
