UPDATE: Student, Shooter, Killed in Oregon High School

By Associated Press | 


A gunman and a student are dead after a shooting today at a high school near Portland, Oregon.

Authorities say there were reports of shots fired at 8 a.m. today at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Students say they were told over the intercom that there was a lockdown and that they should quietly go to their classrooms. They were then evacuated from the school, hands on their heads, to be reunited with their parents in a supermarket parking lot.

One 15-year-old student says he saw a physical education teacher at the school with a bloodied shirt. Another 15-year-old says she was hunkered down in a locker room with another student and two teachers.

Police rushed to a Portland, Oregon-area high school following reports of gunfire.

TV news showed students being led from Reynolds High School in Troutdale with their hands on their heads.

Shots were reported shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Deputies report the shooter is now dead.

Students inside the school were texting with their parents. A parent interviewed on TV said she had heard from her son inside the school that he was OK, but she was worried.

Police told parents to go to a nearby parking lot to meet with their sons and daughters as they evacuated the school.
