Multiple shots were fired and officials said they planned to remain on the scene all day investigating.

Nobody was taken into custody. Police said they were searching for a person of interest.

They said it was too early to tell if the shooting was gang-related.

Adams Elementary School and Washington Middle School were put on lockdown for a short time as a precaution.
