One person is in custody, CBS News Texas confirmed. 

CBS News Texas' J.D. Miles reports that the shooting happened inside a classroom and was targeted, stemming from a dispute. At last check, authorities were still trying to find the weapon used.

Dallas ISD said that all students and staff at the high school are safe. The school district is also asking that parents refrain from coming to campus as the scene is still active. 

There is no active threat at the campus, officials say.

Family outside the school told CBS News Texas that they received calls from their students, letting them know there was a shooting happening.

The parent of a 10th grader said her son was shaken up.

"I'm just all upset right now," she said. "Police don't tell us anything."

Another parent said his 11th grader called him while he was at work. 

"I don't need nothing bad happening to my daughter. They won't let me in, we're just waiting right now," he said. "It goes back to Uvalde."
