Police say two staff members were injured in a school shooting in Kansas.

According to local authorities, no students were hurt in the shooting and a suspect is currently in custody.

According to the Associated Press, Jaylon Desean, Elmore, 18, was arrested Saturday by the Johnson County Prosecutor's Office. His bond has been set at $1million and he has not yet appeared in court.

The office of the prosecutor didn't respond to Saturday's questions regarding Elmore's attorney. There is no listing for Elmore in online court records. According to AP, online records indicate that Elmore has been convicted of aggravated robbery.

Police identified the staff members as administrators and school resource officers. They are now in stable condition. According to a tweet, the sheriff's office identified Erik Clark as the resource officer. Clark has been a cop for 15 years and a school resources officer for seven.

According to Olathe Police Department, the incident started at 10:38 AM local time. A school resource officer arrived at the school's main desk "in reference to an administrative matter concerning an 18-year old male student." Police said that the student then "produced a gun" and shots were exchanged between him and the School Resource officer.

According to police, the officer in question has been placed on administrative leave as per standard procedure.

At a press conference on Friday, Olathe Police Sergeant Joel Yeldell stated that both the administrator and resource officer were in stable condition and expected to survive. The suspect, who was also wounded in the arrest, is expected to also survive.

"The good news? No students were hurt," Yeldell stated. "We have a school resource officer. It sounds like he did his job. That's fantastic news."

Police secured the scene at Olathe East after the shooting. Students were then transported to reunification centres to meet their guardians.

Olathe Police stated Friday, "Thank you to the amazing community for continuing patience and teamwork." "We also want to thank all our school and law enforcement partners."

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly stated that her office was in contact with law enforcement regarding the situation and that "our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Olathe East high school community today."
