Police Chief Kimberley Jacobs said the suspect was a male, but was uncertain of his age. No injuries were reported, according to CBS News.

A shooter was reported at the school, on South High Street in Columbus, at 8:33 a.m. on Friday morning.

Police in Columbus, the USA state's capital, accused 18-year-old Adan Abdullahi of firing a gun inside Schioto High School on Friday morning - sparking multiple calls of an "active shooter".

Police did not explain what Abdullahi's motive was.

The school's vision statement says, "The Columbus Scioto family will collaborate effectively, with students, staff, families and stakeholders by implementing specific strategies that impact the personal and professional development of 21st century citizens Our highly qualified staff will provide student-centered instruction in a non-coercive, highly structured environment".

"We couldn't be happier with the outcome of this", police spokeswoman Denise Alex-Bouzounis said.

School officials said that all students are safe following Friday's ordeal.

An active shooter situation is ongoing at a high school in Columbus, Ohio.

A message was left for a Columbus schools representative. An assistant principal called 9-1-1 from inside a closet, and another staff member intervened and kept the suspect calm until officers arrived. "Excellent job by our officers!"

The district's website says Columbus Scioto "serves students challenged by emotional disturbances" in grades six through 12.
