AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - An active shooter was at North Lake College in the Dallas suburb of Irving, local police said on their Twitter feed on Wednesday, and the school was placed on lockdown.

There have been no initial reports of injuries. Shots were fired on the campus, local TV broadcaster WFAA cited Irving Police as saying

"North Lake College-Intruder Lock-down. Go to nearest room and lock-down. POLICE ON SCENE," the school said on its Twitter feed.

Local TV news footage showed students in groups running for safety and numerous police vehicles on the campus.

The incident came after a man enrolled at the University of Texas on Monday went on a stabbing spree with a large hunting knife at the school's Austin campus about 200 miles to the south of Irving, killing one student and wounding three others, police said.
