Three people have been shot at Rigby Middle School in Jefferson County.

According to an eyewitness, a person wearing black clothing walked into the school and shot three people, two students and a janitor. The shooting victims were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The eyewitness also told KPVI that the shooter was taken into custody.

Police have locked down the school and the area. Students have been taken to Rigby High School where they will wait for parents to pick them up.

Governor Brad Little made a post on his Facebook page saying, "I am praying for the lives and safety of those involved in today's tragic events. Thank you to our law enforcement agencies and school leaders for their efforts in responding to the incident. I am staying updated on the situation."

KPVI is working on this story and will have more information as it becomes available.
