TOWSON - According to police, one person was injured in Towson's Loch Raven Village from a shooting on Friday.

Police say the shooting occurred around 10:30 a.m. at a townhouse on the 1700 block of Glen Kieth Boulevard. According to police, one male victim was transported to an area hospital.

The incident prompted four schools in the Loch Raven Village area to lockdown. Loch Raven Academy, White Oak School, and Oakleigh and Plains elementary schools all locked down out of precaution.

BCPS says the schools were on "lockout as precaution," not a complete lockdown, and that the lockout ended quickly.

"Lockout means everything is normal inside the buildings, but exterior access is restricted... They were on lockout for about an hour and went off of lockout status at about 11:15 a.m. All activities at the schools have returned to normal."

This incident is under investigation, and no further details have been released.
