SAN ANTONIO – After briefly lifting the lockdown Thursday morning, school and district officials announced that Wagner High School is being placed on lockdown again.
Wagner High School was put on a perimeter lockdown Thursday morning after a report of a shooting in the parking lot, Judson Independent School District spokesman Steve Linscomb said.
He said the shooting was reported just after 9:30 a.m. and that the only vehicle targeted belonged to the principal.
District administrators said students in the school reported seeing a man drive into the parking lot, get out of his car and hit the principal’s car with a baseball bat. The students said the man then pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the parked car before driving away.
The lockdown was briefly lifted before noon. Officials re-issued the lockdown after receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be the shooter, who said they were going to come back and shoot at the school.
Linscomb said one or two witnesses saw the shooting and said the gunman was wearing a white tank top and driving a white four-door sedan. School officials believe the shooter may be a student.
Parents are being allowed to pick students up and the school is preparing for an early dismissal Thursday.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office is assisting JISD police in the investigation.
