The campus was placed on immediate lock down, according to Campus Spokesman Jed young, following the reports of the shooter. 

Details are unclear at this time, but the shooting may have been over an unknown dispute that took place in the school library, where the involved parties may have fired upon each other. 

In addition to Lone Star, several other school facilities in the district also went into lock down. Authorities believe there may be a second shooter and there is currently a manhunt to find them.
