The district told WKOW that Principal John Klang was shot, but would not confirm his condition. The station reported that the school is in lockdown.
People who answered the phones at the Sauk County Sheriff's Department and the Weston School District did not immediately comment to The Associated Press.
Richland County Sheriff Chief Deputy Tom Hougan was at the scene outside the southwest Wisconsin school, but would not confirm the details because it was not in his jurisdiction.
"The students are safe," Hougan told the AP. "The scene is secure."
A woman who answered the phone at the school district's office confirmed one person had been shot and said no one else was hurt. The woman, who would not give her name, said the gunman had been taken into custody.
