Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police responded Monday afternoon to a shooting near a JCPS school, according to Metrosafe dispatchers.

It happened in the 1600 block of Gallagher Street in California Park, which adjoins Wheatley Elementary School. The school is located at 1107 S. 17th Street.

Dispatchers say one person had been shot. Their status is not known.

Wheatley Elementary was briefly on lockdown, according to a spokesperson for JCPS, but is now releasing students. The buses were delayed as well, which means 2,500 students across JCPS who use bus depots will be 45-60 minutes late.

The California Community Center was also on lockdown.
