Seattle police are responding to a shooting at Ingraham High School in the city's north on Tuesday morning. The Seattle Police Department (SPD) said that at least one person has been injured.

Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz said that the suspect had been taken into custody just after 11 am local time, according to KOMO News.

According to Seattle Police, officers responded to the area just before 10 am local time on Tuesday after receiving reports of a shooting at the school. Police quickly formed contact teams and entered the building.

Upon entering the building, police said they "found one person with a gunshot wound and provided aid until Seattle Fire Department medics transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries."

The SPD said on Twitter that a reunification site has been set up at North 135th Street and Meridian Avenue North.

No students are being released at this time, the tweet says, though families can now "prepare to meet at that location."

The public has been asked to avoid the area, reports KOMO news.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
