The Ellis County Sheriff's Office earlier posted message on its Facebook page, saying that "shooter is in custody", and that students were being moved as they continued the investigation.

A 15-year-old student Texas girl was shot in her high school cafeteria on Monday morning by a 16-year-old boy, sheriff's officials said - adding that the teen was arrested soon after. The superintendent says roughly 50 students and staff members were inside the cafeteria having breakfast when the student opened fire.

School officials say they can not comment on disciplinary actions involving students.

The girl was taken via helicopter to Parkland Memorial Hospital. Perry said a girl was shot and wounded.
