LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Lufkin police have detained two juveniles suspected of involvement in a Monday afternoon shooting.

The incident took place around 2:45 p.m. at Pinewood Park Apartments on Percy Simond Avenue, which is near the campus of Dunbar Primary school, though city officials say the incident is unconnected from the school. Surveillance video revealed two shooters and multiple bullet casings were found at the scene.

Officials say the school was immediately put on lockdown to ensure the safety of the students but the lockdown has since been called off. Parents are beginning to pick up their children now.

This story will be updated as more details become available.
