A student was in custody Friday after surrendering to police at a northern California high school where shots reportedly had been fired, authorities said.

A Butte County Sheriff's dispatcher said a 911 call came in from Las Plumas High School just after 9 a.m. He said deputies were talking to the student.

About an hour later, the sheriff's office told NBC News the gunman was in custody.

A message posted on the Oroville Union High School District Web site said all six schools in the district were locked down during the brief standoff.

"The Butte County Sheriff's Office has the campus under control," the district said in a statement on its Web site. "If your student is at the Las Plumas campus you will not be able to pick them up at this time.
