A student opened fire inside a Dallas-area high school during a fight, injuring four people before he fled, authorities said Wednesday.

 

Republican Gov. Greg Abbott told reporters during a visit to the Texas-Mexico border hours after the shooting. Timberview serves about 1,900 students in ninth through 12th grades. 

 

The sprawling complex opened in 2004. The shooting happened just days after a shooting at a Houston charter school that injured an administrator.

 

An earlier version of this story was corrected to reflect that the suspect’s last name is Simpkins, not Simpkin.
