There are reports of a few students being injured.

If you're hearing about a shooting at a high school in Chardon, Ohio, (east of Cleveland) this morning, the story is in the very early stages and there's not a lot of hard information to pass along just yet.

According to what local news outlets are reporting, three or four students have been injured. One suspect is reportedly in custody. There may be another at large.

But as is usually the case when news is breaking, there are more questions than answers at this point.

If you're interested in following:

— There's live-streaming from Youngstown's WKBN-TV.

— Cleveland's The Plain Dealer is updating this story.

— Fox 8 in Cleveland has video here.

— Cleveland's WKYC-TV is updating its reports here.

We'll update when there's more to report.

Update at 10:05 a.m. ET. From WKSU:

NPR member station WKSU is following the news here. It reports that "two of the four victims were flown by helicopter to Metrohealth Medical Center [in Cleveland]. No word on their condition. The other two were taken to Hillcrest hospital [in Mayfield Heights; a Cleveland suburb]."

WKSU's Kevin Niedermier just told our Newscast Desk that authorities aren't saying yet whether the suspect is a student.

Update at 9:55 a.m. ET:

The Plain Dealer says that: "According to the Geauga County Sheriff's office and the FBI, a suspect has been arrested. Scott Wilson of the FBI said that at this point they believe there was only one shooter, but the incident remains under investigation."
