The gunfire started just after 10:30 a.m. The San Bernardino Fire Department reported that there were multiple gunshot wounds, and that a triage has been set up with a victim count taking place.
The students have been taken to Cajon High School for safety.
The shooting comes less than two years after the 2015 San Bernardino terror attack, in which 14 people were killed and 22 others were injured. It also comes as San Bernardino continues to struggle with increasing violence. According to the San Bernardino Sun, the city saw 62 homicides in 2016, marking its deadliest year since 1995.
