A student locked inside a classroom during a shooting at a Florida high school on Wednesday took photos and tweeted updates.

In one of the images, students can be seen sitting on the floor and texting on their phones.

"My school is being shot up and I am locked inside," the unidentified student said in a tweet. "I'm f---ing scared right now."

CNN and local station WSVN 7 reported that students still in the school are barricaded in classrooms and hiding in closets.

Business Insider was not able to verify the authenticity of the student's Twitter account.

One person is in police custody, the Broward County sheriff's office said, but the scene remains active. The FBI has arrived and is investigating the incident.

The Coral Springs Police Department said on Twitter that students and teachers still inside the high school should remain barricaded until authorities arrive and give them further instructions.

At 4:25 p.m. local time, the student tweeted another photo that he was free:
