Two students have been shot at an Alabama high school.

Birmingham Interim Police Chief Orlando Wilson said his department is seeking to determine the circumstances of the shooting shortly before 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Huffman High School, adding investigators had already begun seeking out witnesses and would examine school surveillance video.

Following a brief lockdown, students from the school were allowed to go home.

This story is breaking.

Wilson did not respond to questions as to who fired the gun.

Police are saying that the shooting was "accidental", though they have yet to provide clarification on what that means. The school was placed on a brief lockdown, and police were called to the scene.

"We lost a person, not just a person, but a student".

"Our hearts are heavy", he said.

The shooting comes exactly three weeks after police say a former student opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in south Florida, killing 17 people in one of the worst school shootings in history.

Authorities have, however, determined the shooting was not sparked by someone from outside the school.

Police say a 17-year-old girl has been killed in a shooting at a Birmingham, Alabama, high school that has left another 17-year-old student, a boy, injured. "I think it's really important we find a way to mourn with this family", Woodfin said at the news conference.
