A shooting at a Virginia high school harmed at least two people Monday afternoon, officials said.
Newport News police said in a statement that officers are on the scene of a shooting at Heritage High School.
Newport News schools spokeswoman Michelle Price said by telephone that there was a weapons-related incident at the school with at least two victims. She did not have details about the severity of their injuries.
The incident was contained and schools officials were preparing to release students to go home, she said.
Students were being evacuated to the tennis courts, where parents can meet them, police said.
Video from the scene showed parents on sidewalks talking on cellphones. Crime scene tape stretched across portions of the school parking lot, and a police command truck was parked nearby.
