DALLAS (KRLD) - A shooting in the Bishop Arts area of Dallas put two schools on lockdown Wednesday morning. Police were called to a shooting at an apartment complex in the 400 block of E. 9th Street about 9:30 a.m.

They found one person, a juvenile, had been shot. He was taken to the hospital, but police have not released his condition.

The complex is across the street from WH Adamson High School and about four blocks from Hector Garcia Middle School. Both schools went on lockdown as a precaution; no one was allowed to enter or leave.

The Dallas police gang unit was investigating outside the complex. Neighbors say detectives were going door-to-door, asking if anyone had surveillance video.

"I don't know what's going on. It's been kind of ugly. I don't know if it's a holiday season thing, but it's really ugly," one neighbor said. "It's a quiet neighborhood. It's a nice neighborhood. It's kind of scary."

Dallas police say four people have been detained. They are still investigating what may have led to the shooting.
