An adult female, who is pregnant, was treated at the school and was not taken to the hospital.

 

Police believe some of the victims were students. Two of them are believed to have been shot.

 

The suspect was identified as student Timothy George Simpkins, 18. Simpkins fled the school after the shooting but turned himself in after getting an attorney.

 

He has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A 45 caliber handgun was found in the streets of nearby Grand Prairie that police believe could be the gun used in the shooting.
