ST. JAMES- Two people have been taken into custody after a shooting in the parking of a high school as a basketball game was in progress Tuesday night.

The shooting happened at St. James High as the school's team was playing Lutcher High.

One person was shot, and they were rushed to a hospital in New Orleans by an emergency helicopter. The sheriff said it appears only one person was hit when a group of young people got into an argument. Emergency responders described the victim's injuries as critical.

Sheriff Willie Martin, Jr., said the people involved may be from Lutcher.

More is expected to be released Wednesday morning. Check back for updates.
