Shots were fired at a German school in the northern city of Bremerhaven on Thursday and one person, who was not a student, was wounded, police said.

“The students are in their classrooms with their teachers. The police have the situation on site under control,” police added in a statement. “Police measures are continuing.”

German paper Bild said the injured person was a woman.

Bild also reported that a second suspect appeared to be on the run. It earlier reported they were armed with a crossbow. Police said they were looking into whether more than one person was involved.

The shooting took place at the Lloyd Gymnasium, Bild reported.

Online newspaper Nord24 said a schoolgirl who heard shots had called the police. Students barricaded themselves in their classrooms, it added.
