Police believe the involved students walked to an apartment complex across the street from the school, where they got into an argument, The Sentinel reported.

The student got help getting back to the school, where he waved down an administrator, Doneland said.
The school was placed on lockdown while authorities searched for the shooter. Donelan said the lockdown was lifted around 1:30 p.m.
Authorities have not identified the shooter.
