KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- One person was injured in a shooting Friday morning in the Northland, police said.

The shooting occurred around 7:40 a.m. near the Hidden Valley Park in the 4000 block of Bellaire Avenue. 

The victim had life-threatening injuries, police said. 

Winnetonka High School was under a lock and teach Friday morning. Under a lock and teach, students can't leave campus and have limited access to hallways. 

The Eastgate 6th Grade Center did not go into a lock and teach. A spokesman for North Kansas City Schools said that those decisions are made on a school-by-school basis by the administration on site.

Both schools are about 1.5 miles from Hidden Valley Park.
