Police are still reportedly looking for the suspect.

"This was a sad, sad event which, at this point, appears to be domestic violence which occurred in the parking lot," Prince George's County Police Chief Henry Stawinski told the paper. "No students were directly involved. No students were harmed during this event."

While students may not have been the target or directly involved in the incident, some were still impacted by what happened.

"Everyone was just crying, like we didn't know what to do. We were just crying," one student told NBC. "We have a crate where we put all of our equipment. They rushed us in there and after about half an hour they us to a locker room and they kept us in the gym after that."

Classes are expected to continue as scheduled on Friday, the network reports.
