Tucson Police say a verbal altercation led to a shooting incident near Amphitheater High School today.

Tucson Police say a verbal altercation led to a shooting incident near Amphitheater High School today that resulted in the lockdown of three schools.

According to police, someone in a car pulled a gun on a group of teenagers near the high school and nearby Amphi Middle School. Those schools and Prince Elementary were all locked down as a result.

Police say a group of kids had gotten into a verbal altercation with someone in the car, and someone in the car fired a shot.

According to Jeffrey Bounds, the brother of one of the girls in the group, his sister told him the gun wasn't pointed directly at them.

"They said that they got the gun out of the car, and just shot somewhere," Jeffrey Bounds said. "But they did say he was aiming kind of up."
