ChiccoDodiFC/iStock(LOS ANGELES) -- A shooting was reported Thursday morning at a high school in Santa Clarita, California, where multiple people are believed to be injured, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Deputies have swarmed the scene at Saugus High School, about 35 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said there are three victims, including at least one gunshot victim.

"The three victims have been transported and they are receiving treatment right now," he told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV.

Students were led single file through the campus by armed officers. Multiple ambulances were spotted at the scene as worried parents jammed the streets.

Local photographer Austin Dave described the scene as "controlled chaos" to KABC.

Sheriff's officials urge those who live in the area to lock their doors and stay inside.

Other nearby schools were placed on lockdown, according to sheriff's officials.
