Police announced on Tuesday that the suspected shooter at an Oregon high school was dead and the situation was now stabilized. A student victim also reportedly was killed.
At about 8 a.m. local time, police were called to Reynolds High School in Troutdale for reports of an active shooter situation, reports KPTV.
Law enforcement that arrived on scene helped students and staff evacuate during lockdown.
The lockdown, for the school of 2,800 students, remains in effect as police say they must thoroughly search the school to make sure everything was safe.
KOIN 6 reports that one student was shot and killed at the high school before police took the suspect down.
According to Reuters, it appears that no one else suffered any injuries as a result of the shooting, despite earlier reports. American Medical Response and local fire departments denied that anyone was taken to the hospital.
Reynolds School District Superintendent Linda Florence said, "This is a very tragic day, one that I hoped would never ever be part of my experience."
