A Judson High School student shot three students with a BB gun in a school locker room Thursday morning.

According to a school district email sent out to parents and robo calls, the victims suffered minor injuries and were attended by nursing staff.

Judson Independent School District spokesman Steve Linscomb said the three victims were treated on campus. 

"The students that were injured suffered minor injuries but it did break the skin. They were taken to the nurse's office and they were treated there. No EMS or transport was needed," Linscomb said.

The student who took the BB guns "has been dealt with accordingly by our administrative team and the Judson Police Department," the email stated.

Moments after the shooting, students called a coach in an adjacent room and the coach stopped further shooting, Linscomb said. A second BB gun was found in the student's backpack, Linscomb said.

"I don't know what to think, actually. I don't know if this is new to this school. I've never heard of anything happen like that," said parent Alan Shelley. 

"The school didn't do a lockdown because the incident was taken care of and dealt with so quickly," Linscomb said. 

Linscomb said the campus police department is still investigating but the student could face a possible charge of assault with bodily injury.
