'Gun taken,' person in custody after active shooter reported at Ohio high school

An Ohio SWAT team arrested one person and confiscated a gun after an “active shooter” was reported at a Columbus high school on Friday morning.

Police on Friday afternoon said a student "fired multiple shots inside the school," and later charged Adan Abdullahi, 18, with improperly discharging a firearm in a school safety zone, a felony.

No one was injured during the incident, police said.

“SWAT made an arrest, gun taken, no injuries. Excellent job by our officers,” Columbus Police tweeted.

Scioto High School was placed on lockdown and civilians were asked to avoid the area as police and fire crews responded to the scene, district spokesperson Scott Varner told 10tv.com.

"Our officers did a superb job of rapidly responding, securing the scene, working with school officials and neighboring law enforcement agencies as well as getting students out of harm's way and the suspect quickly into custody," Chief Kim Jacobs said in a statement.

It's unclear if Abdullahi had a connection to the school.
