A shooting investigation and suspect search forced a San Jose school to go under lockdown Thursday for about three hours.

Police said a teen has been arrested in connection with the shooting near Yerba Buena High School and another was hurt with non-life threatening injuries. Students at the campus were told to shelter in place as a precaution while police responded and set up a perimeter in the area.

The shooting occurred at about 10:43 a.m. in the area of Lucretia Avenue and Taji Drive, and police said it is unclear if the crime took place on campus. The teens involved in the shooting appear to be students at Pegasus Continuation School, which is on the Yerba Buena High School campus.

Police at 12:52 p.m. reported on Twitter that a suspect was located and a firearm was recovered. The lockdown at Yerba Buena High School was lifted just after 1 p.m.
