An 18-year-old man has died in a shooting on the Canyon Springs High School campus in North Las Vegas, Nevada Tuesday afternoon.

North Las Vegas police said the shooting happened around 2:40 p.m. on the northwest corner of campus near the baseball field. The teen who was shot was transported to University Medical Center where he later died. It is unclear whether he was a student although police initially reported that he was.  

Police said the shooting appears to be a targeted incident, not random. Police initially received a report of an active shooter. Police searched classrooms to make sure there were no others wounded. 

The school, located near Alexander Road and North 5th Street, is on lockdown. Classes had already let out for the day but about 500 students were still on campus for a magnet program. 

No suspects have been detained.
