A lockdown at Temple High School has ended after a student suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Students and teachers witnessed the scene as they arrived for class Tuesday morning.

"I believe there were a few witnesses, both students and teachers alike," Temple ISD spokesperson Brad Sheffield told WOAI,  "It was on the exterior of the school at a place where students were arriving."

Temple High was placed on a “soft” lockdown, which means students can move from class to class, but cannot leave the building as exits are locked. The lockdown lasted about two hours.
