Two people have died and several others have been injured, according to a spokesperson for a Texas hospital after a report of an active shooter caused an elementary school to be locked down. Police say a suspect is in custody.

An active shooter was reported Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District said in a statement on Twitter. The Uvalde Police Department said on Facebook that the shooter was taken into custody.
