According to reports, three people were shot at a charter school in Des Moines on Monday afternoon. The incident happened at Starts Right Here, a community outreach center for at-risk youth.

Two of the individuals who were shot are in critical condition while the other is in serious condition, according to the Des Moines Police Department.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds said she is “shocked” and “saddened” to hear about the shooting.

“I’ve seen first-hand how hard Will Keeps and his staff works to help at-risk kids through this alternative education program,” Reynolds said. “My heart breaks for them, these kids and their families. Kevin and I are praying for their safe recovery.”

Shortly after the shooting, Des Moines Police took multiple suspects into custody following a traffic stop.
