PORTLAND, Ore.– Three people were shot Friday afternoon near a high school in Portland, Oregon, Lt. Rich Tyler of the Portland Fire Department said.
Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson said three student-age people, two males and a female, were shot near the Rosemary Anderson High School campus and ran inside a school building after being shot.
The victims were breathing and conscious when they were transported to a hospital, according to the police. Their condition was not immediately available.
Police said the shooter left the scene. No arrests were reported in the immediate aftermath.
Officers have cleared the school and they say it’s safe and secure, KPTV reported.
Rosemary Anderson High School and nearby Jefferson High School and Portland Community College were put on lockdown, authorities said.
Rosemary Anderson High School is an alternative school for students who aren’t able to succeed in their respective mainstream high schools, KPTV reported.
This shooting is two days away from the two-year anniversary of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Conn. in which Adam Lanza shot 20 students and six adults at the school after killing his mother.AlertMe
