2 victims in shooting across from high school in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS - Several schools in Colorado Springs were on lockdown Friday during lunchtime after reports of shots fired across from Doherty High School. 

All the lockdowns have since been lifted.

Colorado Springs School District 11 says Doherty High School, located off of Powers Road in Northeast Colorado Springs, was in a "shelter in place" as of about 12:15 p.m. 

"We don't have many details right now. Staff is doing everything possible to keep students and staff safe," a Facebook post from the district said. 

A tweet from Colorado Springs Police said there had been a shooting in the 4600 block of Austin Bluffs Parkway, which is near Doherty High School. One student was shot and suffered serious injuries, said Colorado Springs Police spokesman Lieutenant Howard Black. 

Black said there was a confrontation between some people in a car and three students that may have led to the shooting.

Carver Elementary School and Keller Elementary were also on lockdown due to police activity in the area, according to the school district's Facebook account. 

This story will be updated as more details are available.
