The injured student, whose identity and extent of injury was not revealed, was taken by Medevac to an area hospital, authorities said. Students are being escorted to the nearby Perry Hall Shopping Center at the corner of Ebenezer Road and Belair Road, where parents can meet them, police said.

Hundreds of visibly shaken parents and others gathered at the Perry Hall Shopping Center at the corner of Ebenezer Road and Belair Road as police helicopters hovered overhead.

Reportedly, the shooting took place in the cafeteria of the school, and sent students diving for cover under the tables as "We are in Code Red" was announced over the intercoms just as the school went into lockdown.

You can see in the livestream as parents begin reuiniting with their children now.

More as information becomes available.
