Three people were injured in a shooting at a southeast Idaho middle school on Thursday in the town of Rigby, according to police. A suspect is in custody.

“Today we had the worst nightmare a school district could encounter. We had a school shooting here at Rigby Middle School,” Jefferson School District Superintendent Chad Martin told KIFI-TV, a local news station. “What we know so far is the shooter has been apprehended. There is no further threat to the students.”

Ambulances were dispatched to the school around 9:15 in the morning, where two students and one adult suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to school officials. They are now in stable condition at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, the Idaho Press reports.

One of the injured was an adult school custodian, Jefferson County Sheriff Steve Anderson said.

Students were evacuated from Rigby Middle School to a neighbouring high school.
