The school sent a text message about the lockdown around 11:45 a.m., and Irving PD told news agencies that shots had been fired. There’s other video on Twitter of a police officer in a room with a dozen or so students, telling them to “take it easy.” The department had advised students to barricade themselves in classrooms and told others to avoid the area.
