Update: Federal Law enforcement officials told a local TV station that there are at least eight people dead following the Friday morning shooting at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas. The total number of fatalities could be as high as 10.

According to CNN, the shooting took place one day before the school's graduation ceremony, which is set for Saturday.

Earlier, we picked up reports that at least one student had been shot in the leg, and was receiving medical attention.

One student who spoke with reporters described Friday as a day like any other. Until somebody pulled a fire alarm and students started lining up outside per the fire drill protocol.

Then suddenly gunshots rang out.

"So, it was just a normal-like class day. We all were doing our work in first period. And then all of a sudden like it's a fire drill," 14-year-old junior Angelica Martinez said.

"Not even five minutes later, we start hearing gunshots."

That's when everybody starts running, she said, despite teachers telling them to "stay put."

"But we're all just running away."

Myles Kanipes, son of Sante Fe High School athletic director and football team head coach Mark Kanipes, told CNN that his dad is on lockdown on campus, but is otherwise safe.

"He is fine but he said it’s crazy (right now) but would call me once he finds out more. All I know is someone pulled the fire alarm and once everyone got out the classes someone started shooting. His secretary is the one who first heard the shooting, the shooter was in the art class," Myles Kanipes said.

After the shooting started, a group of students were directed to empty their backpacks in a field.
