The state Department of Public Safety said in a press release that state and local police were dispatched to Berrendo Middle School at 8:11 a.m. and that "there are preliminary reports of injury," though further details (number injured, names, age, etc.) are not available at this time.

However, State Police Public Information Officer Emmanuel Gutierrez says the threat has been "alleviated" and children were being bused from the school not long after the shots were fired.

The building is currently in lockdown and we'll provide more information here as news breaks.

Yesterday, a movie theater shooting in Tampa claimed the life of one film goer who had gotten into an argument with another over texting.
