Sam Houston HS Student Hospitalized in Off-Campus Incident that Caused Lockdown on September 27

Arlington, Texas - A 17 year-old Sam Houston High School student was hospitalized after being shot in an off-campus incident that locked down three Arlington schools, including Sam Houston High School.

Arlington police received a call early Monday afternoon about an altercation involving teens at a gas station on Arkansas Lane where gunshots were reportedly fired.

Officers arrived but could not locate anyone who'd been injured. Later in the afternoon, police were notified by Medical City Arlington that a 17-year-old arrived at the ER with a non-lethal gunshot wound to the foot.

According to Arlington Police, investigators have identified most of the people involved in the altercation and are gathering information from them. The teen who was hospitalized is not being cooperative in the investigation, police say, but they believe he was part of the altercation as well.

Arlington Independent School District confirmed in a tweet released Monday afternoon that three schools, Adams and Atherton elementary schools and Sam Houston High School, were all placed on lockdown due to police activity in the area.

After thorough investigation, police determined there was no threat to the schools. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
