Police were on scene at a Columbus school where a suspect has been arrested following a Friday morning active shooter situation.

Police were initially called to Columbus-Scioto High School around 8:30 a.m. Friday in reference to the active shooter.

Police then reported they arrested the suspect just before 9AM.

A student brought a gun to his OH high school on Friday (Sep 8) and began shooting, but the quick actions of a school employee prevented bloodshed.

"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", said Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs.
