At least two people were shot in a California high school on Thursday morning and police have taken the shooter into custody. The shooting took place at Taft Union High School just outside of Bakersfield, California though no official statements have been released.

The local ABC affiliate received two separate calls from people who were hiding in closets during the incident which began around 9.20am. As of 11am, officials from the Kern County Sheriff's Department were still checking each room in the school.

The public school was originally opened in 1912 and has no known history of similar violent incidents. The sheriff confirmed that one student was shot and had to be airlifted to Kern Medical Center with undisclosed injuries. The second person reported only minor injuries and refused medical treatment at the scene.

Neither of the individuals have been identified, only to say that the one with more serious injuries was a student at the school.

Parents are being told to pick up all of the other students at the school's football field immediately.

Ray Pruitt, the spokesman for the Kern County Sheriff, said that a shotgun was used in the attack and the suspect is thought to be a student at the school.
