(UPDATE) Police: Gunman kills student in school shooting

Oregon School Shooting

TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) — A gunman who shot and killed a student at a high school in Troutdale, Oregon, was found dead as police arrived.

The attack panicked students at Reynolds High School Tuesday morning after a lockdown was ordered and they were told to quietly go to their classrooms.

One freshman student said she hunkered down in a locker room with another student and two teachers. Another student said he saw a physical education teacher at the school with a bloodied shirt.

Troutdale police chief Scott Anderson said he was sorry for the family of the slain student, whose name was not immediately released. Police also did not identify the gunman or say how he died.

The first reports of shots fired came at 8 a.m. on the next-to-last-day of classes.

Parents and students were reunited in a supermarket parking lot.
